that's one complaint i have about some authors.  Usually, the first couple of books the characters really come thru and you feel like you are that character.  But then it gets to the fourth or fifth book (or even second or third) and it's like its not even the same character anymore.  Has anyone ever read the Bloody Jack series by L.A. Meyer? It gets like that.

I wish more books had a remarkable ending, instead of a great start and horrible finish. But that seems to be more the norm than the opposite. I always say, they ruin hits by making sequels.

Yes, I agree. The first one was amazing, but the second wasn't so good, and I didn't like the third much either (Though it was better than the second)

I thought so too.  I couldn't find the plot for the third one but the ending was the cutest (and actually corniest) ending ever!

That's a lot of books! By 25 of them, I'd assume some readers would stop reading like you did, right? Or is it a different plot everytime?
