really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy-sf, read-in-2010
Read from May 06 to 09, 2010

I have way too many books in the TBR pile, but after seeing this in the Fantasy Book Club, and reading the excerpt on smashwords, I had to buy and download the rest of it and read it straight away. I was a little worried when I noticed the word "dark" used in almost every review of this book, I have no idea what "dark fantasy" meant, so I was psyching myself for major trauma/gore, but now that I've finished it I'm glad there was no need for the worry.

So, there was a lot I liked about this book - none of the characters are very likeable, I didn't know who were evil/going to "turn" evil, it featured a mix of mythological creatures who are not normally associated with each other, and I really liked that I didn't know which way the story was going and couldn't wait to find out :P

An exciting, original story. 4 stars.
