The heroine can be tiresome, but the character dynamics and the author's attention to detail make this book an entertaining read.

Mainly a study on revenge and the costs of reaching for power, this fantasy about an orphaned girl who builds a coalition to reclaim her lands and seek revenge on her usurping uncle and his religious allies is a bit jumpy and has "shocking" plot developments that just come off as abrupt a little too often.

This book started out decent enough, but as it kept going I started to dislike the protagonist more and more. By the end I really hated her.
I understand that giving your characters flaws in a good thing, but it's a bit too much.

I liked it at the start but as the plot went on I got less and less attached to the characters. Its more of a game of thrones kind of fantasy in the way that there is minimal magic references but LOTS of medieval wars and strategies throughout the plot. Not the kind of fantasy I'm into but definitely would be a good read for someone else. Personally, I got a third in, gave up, read the last chapter, and didn't feel like I missed that much.

Poorly written; too much unnecessary description in some parts, with hard-to-follow and often seemingly unconnected (or perhaps just badly described) sub plots throughout the rest of the book. Interesting enough to read once (it had potential until about 2/3 of the way through), not interesting enough to read again.

I recently reread this book and enjoyed it. While I did enjoy the "let's rescue the kingdom" idea, I did not like the amount of odd sexual situations. I think it could have done without those scenes and still told the story quite well.
