Podem ler a opinião completa no Floresta de Livros.

This first part (of the first book) was disappointing to me. Phédre really isn't the type of character I can relate to (on any level), and I felt like she had to personality.
There were too many intrigues, far too many characters to remember, and little of these actually showed up at any one time in the book, which made it that much harder to remember.

Still, the authors world-building was very good, especially in a religous-political side of things. Her writing as well was very enthralling, which kept me from geting bored in the info-dump stages of the first (many) chapters.

I still want to read the second part, but either Phédre grows a back bone, or I won't be moving forward afetr that one.

It's a good thing Joscelyn is in the book, otherwise I might have given up after this one.

54.0% "The only times I seem to be able to stand Phédre si when she's whith Hyacinthe. Aside from those moments, she's one of the most unerving protagonista I've ever read. Either she changes before the end of the book, or I have my doubts I'll give the second parta chance. *sigh*"

Que coincidência! :)
Ainda só li meia página XD Por isso não tenho opinião formada. E tu? Estás a gostar?

Inês Montenegro No geral, sim =)

Ana Eu também.

Andreia Estou aborrecida com a linguagem e com a falta de interação das personagens entre si...
Demasiada importância aos espaços físicos e históricos e pouco aos sentimentos e ao crescimento pessoal da protagonista - Ela parece a mesma com 17 do que quando tinha 7!
.... diz-me que melhora... grrr...

Inês Montenegro Ela consegue ser mais sexualmente activa, para colocar as coisas de modo fofinho, mas não, não cresce.

Ana Andreia,como só li o primeiro livro, a ideia com que fico é que ele não amadurece nada, mas pode ser que mude nos livros seguintes. Mas segundo a Inês, parece que não. :(

Andreia Estou a ver que esta coleção vai ficar para trás na minha lista de aquisições futuras =P
