I think I'm really over the Storm Constantine experience. She's always been hit-or-miss with me: The 6 books in the core Wraeththu mythos were wildly uneven-- some of them were incredible, some of them felt contrived; her early short stories, and one other book I can't remember the title of because I couldn't be arsed to finish it were dull and amateurish in their execution. Her Sea Dragon's Heir trilogy also veered wildly from wonderful to blah.

That said, I absolutely loved The Hienama, a stand

This book picks up the story begun in The Hienama. However it changes perspective as this time it is Gesaril who tells the story.

Portrayed as the evil, selfish kid in the first book, here he gets to tell his view of the things that happened before and of how it continues.

This time the book is actually the journal of Gesaril so there are some gaps in the story when he does not write in it and omissions of things he does not want to talk about. The author uses this quite cleverly to keep up suspen

Where to start? Well, it wasn't good. The main protagonist, Gesaril, was really annoying at times, so much so that I hardly felt any sympathy for him after his initial complaints about everything that has happened to him; including, but not limited to him being all frustrated that he’s so good looking and how hard it is, and also his constant whining about how his life is ruined when he’s got a good thing going for him in Alba Sulh.
Another thing that bothered me was the way it was narrated, it

I liked this book very much. We get to see what happens to Gesaril who was a really messed up har in "Heinama". He's still in love with Isobi and this sequel is about the journey Gesaril takes in trying to get over his love for Isobi, who has a chesnara and has had a harling with him.

I really liked it; it was a nice light read. I think I would have liked it to be a little more in depth, but as Wraeththu mythos goes it's definitely a keeper.
