  1. Poll closed due to lack of interest! Apparently, people are more interested in supermodel polls! 🙂

    Anyway, I started reading Vortex a few days ago , and, well, unfortunately it failed to hold my attention. This is a bit disappointing since I really enjoyed Sten #1. But, for me, the series has declined with each passing voulme. I just couldn’t finish Vortex. I doubt if I can muster up enough courage to ever pick up the eighth and final Sten novel.
