Not sure what went wrong really. The first few chapters seemed like your typical fantasy books that I tend to love but I found myself less and less drawn to the plot. Firstly I really enjoyed reading about Otah but soon his character so deteriorated I didn't care one bit what happened to him, I hated Liat, did not care for Maati. I did like Seedless, but not enough to continue. I'm quite disappointed as it seemed like a genuinely new and interesting world. Honestly it was a case of judging a book by its cover. I'm going to have to get over that!
