Silver Skulls: Portents (Book Review)
As an author, Cawkwell seems to be one of those creators who is extremely divisive among fans. It seems that you either wholeheartedly love her works for their established ideas, the themes they explore and tight writing, or you criticise the book for dragging its feet at every turn and its spartan descriptions which fail to convey the grandeur of the setting. Unlike other authors, there really seems to be no middle-ground at all here and those same points seem to arise again and again. Well, whatever hill you’ve picked to die on in this particular argument, Portents isn’t going to change your mind, as it seems Cawkwell is sticking to her guns even as she experiments with her pet chapter.
