I just couldn't get past the astronomical use of 'I said, He said and I said, She said' REPEATVELY within the same text. That said the plot has some serious potential, it does but ONLY with some careful editing, filling in and rounding of the characters.
Will I finish this trilogy? After waging war with myself taking an entire day to read two short stories, I will have to pass. However, if I run across someone who has bothered to read the final installment I may ask how it ends if I remember.
