I need to finish Ashes, and the ONLY reason I'm reading Ashes is because so many people told me that it was better than Bones. Though I like being surprised, I was disappointed with the surprise in Bones. I felt... played with. The whole sibling thing. I don't like stories to be predictable, don't get me wrong, but I also like it when the surprise happens and you go "OH! so THATS what was implied when so-and-so said/did such-and-such" you know? Things click; there were hints.
In this case I felt like there weren't any hints. I wasn't left with realizations, I was left thinking "...wha? where did THAT come from!?" Did anyone else feel the same way? I felt a little betrayed by the author, but don't worry, I'm going to read Ashes, and if it's as good as everyone says, I may be eagerly awaiting Glass, too. :p
