And they're done by Reeve, which is bonus cool.

Okay. I liked them but like HP I think they are overhyped.

What, the overhypedness? Thats the only thing I don't really like. The story itself is good. ITs nice to see a young adult story that isn't afraid to kill people.

I think so but it's also not nice when the author thinks, "Hm. I have not killed enough people yet. Maybe in the last book I should kill off half the characters. Eh. That's not enough. How about two thirds?" I've had that in 'The Death Cure' and 'Mockingjay'

That happens in A Darkling Plain too. NO ONE is safe in that one. Probably not as much as in Mockingjay if what you say is anything to go by.

Killing characters? That screams Homestuck. All of the characters save a hand's full have died, at least once.

Yeah, that was true in A Darkling Plain but... that one was people dying for real... like old age.

Yeah, but in there they can COME BACK...or something like that. I dunno. I've never really looked into that series.
And in a Darkling Plain? You kidding? Only a couple people die from that. The rest get shot, blown up, die of heart problems, commit suicide, get SPACE LASERED, or and sworded.
