it was ok
bookshelves: fantasy, fiction
Read in September, 2010

What Kim Harrison wrote before she was Kim Harrison: generic quest fantasy with cardboard worldbuilding and a paint-by-numbers romance. I was looking for something fluffy an stupid and I thought this might do it. Unfortunately, it was a bit fluffier and way stupider than anticipated.

The whole thing was not helped by Marguerite Gavin’s audio narration. She has this way of delivering dialogue with oversold! Quivering! Emotion! That did this book in particular no favors. I mean, a straight-faced scene where the villain trashes his tower room and shouts to himself about all his plans being for naught (no, seriously) is never going to impress me, but Gavin’s narration turned it into something that actually made me go “ow.”
