Book 5 Condensed into one episode.....
21 November 2018 | by mesut0024See all my reviews

For someone who has been reading the books Ive been disappointed at the way this series has been condensed into a few episodes per book source material. The books are rich in story telling, with in depth characters. This episode basically rushes all of book 5 to the end, in 50 minutes. It feels rushed and as a result the story and plethora of characters seem superficial.
