I really liked this book. Good fantasy, but then was depressed to find out that there is only this one book, the others are in another language and I can't find any in English. In fact this one is no longer available. So it leaves you hanging in the end with no way to find out the end of the story. I liked the writing style and the story was very interesting. But, I am going to have to give it three stars due to the fact that it just stops and doesn't have a clear ending without reading the ...more

Jeg synes at Karen Skovmands bøger er fantatiske. I starten fandt jeg Ainshas historie enorm svær at komme videre med - Starten er lidt sløv og man ved ikke rigtigt hvad der sker. Hvorfor lever 'sønnen' ikke med sin far fra start af? Hvorfor er Ainshas mor så ond? Jeg spekulerer bare. MEN ! Når man først får fat i at hun er en pige, så giver det ligesom mening. Men jeg synes det er en fed historie og det hårde i hendes liv giver hende kandt.

En sætning her og der ramte mig. Stærkt, endda. Men det var også det. De sidste 97% er sløve, usammenhængende og unødvendigt opstyltede - efter min smag. Jeg havde ingen forventninger, så jeg er ikke skuffet. Men jeg ville alligevel ønske, at der havde været lidt mere power bag det hele, som kunne lokke mig ind i historien.

3.5 stars.

the first few chapters felt a little slow and i did not care much for Ainsha, but the book gradually got better and better! and Ainsha's character development was great.
So yea, i liked it.

It was enjoyable to read. I loved the line when she was discussing terrible stories - "there shouldn't be words for stories like these" in context it was a particularly powerful piece of prose for me

Good enough twist and turns to keep me interested. Had fun reading this book and would like more from this author.
