it was ok
bookshelves: fantasy, historical-fiction
Read from July 13 to 20, 2011

Sadly, the first 2/3rds of this book are of rather poor quality and excruciatingly slow plot development; the only thing that really compelled me through were the characters. Fortunately, not only does the story pick up considerably in the last 1/3rd, but the writing improves. If the entire book were of the same nature as the last part I would recommend it easily, but as it is, i can only hope subsequent books are better. Still, the characters are too endearing to completely let go of yet.
