I've fairly recently become obsessed with reading. This is just me sharing that love with the world. :)
Currently in the (apparently long) process of importing my books from GR.
I'll be honest, I had a difficult time getting into this one for a while. I loved the first book, loved the banter between Penryn and Raffe. With them separated at the beginning of this one, it just wasn't the same. On top of that, it felt like the story was going in several different directions. There were a lot of different things going on, and then there was some historical context thrown in there, and it left me wondering where exactly the story was headed. It seemed pretty disorganized. As a result, I didn't find myself super excited to continue reading, but I did.
But I'm glad I did! Right around 65% or so, things picked the hell up and and I flew through the end. I was reminded why I loved this story so much in the first place. I know I'm being vague but I don't want to be too spoilery. So I'll just leave it at that. It was a rough start for me, but totally worth it.
On a side note, I'm kind of irritated it's now looking like there are going to be 5 books. Ms. Ee better crank that shit out faster than she did this one!
PS, I kind of love the cover.
