Series: A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences #2
Since I had luke warm feelings about Phoenix Rising, I was hoping I’d like The Janus Affair more, but it wasn’t any better or worse. Once again it had a good storyline. Something about the style made it drag on in parts, which is weird considering there is a fair amount of action. The descriptions can be too lengthy, which is something I loathe in literature. The chapters although there are not many which focus on characters other than Braun and Books aren’t interesting. Those chapters do add more to the storyline, but interrupt the flow of the main plot.
Books and Braun are likable characters, but I don’t get enough of them. Their backgrounds are discussed but not in great detail. The budding romance between them is very slow building. To move it along an old flame of Braun’s was introduced. I hate it when one character is used to make someone realize they really have feelings for someone else.
This isn’t a bad series, but it’s not the right series for me.
