My Thoughts:

Ambitious Despair and Ambitious Deception are the second and third installments of Kassandra Klay’s Ambition serial.

I am still intrigued by the story line and interested in the main characters; however, I find the serial format tiresome.  The story, which started out strong for me, is getting bogged down by the filler needed for the serial format.

Ambitious Deception introduces Talon Claymore, Alexandria’s past love interest and Kreed’s nemesis.  Talon provides an interesting twist that will bring more depth to the story as the serial continues.  His inclusion in the story also provides a much needed  explanation for Nick Adler’s crass and aggressive behavior in the first two installments.

As the serial continues, the story is now told from the perspectives of Alexandria, Kreed, and Talon.  I love how this provides the reader with insight into the motivations of all the players.  While I’m still interested in the storyline, I think the pace is adversely impacted by the serial format.  I would be much more interested in completing the story if it were edited and republished as a standalone novel.
