It's really not bad. Well written fantasy full of gods, magic, murder, danger, political plotting and some sexual tension. I even kind of like the heroine. But the interruption drained most of my curiosity. Therefore I abandon this book around page 180.
Teccc, I am positive that you would like this story. If it is okay with you I send my copy your way.

Limonessa My rating is the same. I finished it and thought it was quite good but I did not understand all the hype nor the amount of awards it won. Mh.

oliviasbooks I didn't realise that there was a hype and even awards. And I don't understand either. Not bad, but not outstanding.
