Trilogies have to deal with a lot of negative associations. This is mostly due to movie trilogies turning the middle episode into a throwaway setup for whatever the third movie is going to be. The problem is less pronounced in books, but you have to admit that it’s hard to get excited for the middle book when you know the climax is just around the corner. Some books and movies subvert this wonderfully. The Temporal Void is not one of them.
