I'd like to write a lot but I don't have time right now.

The book started off fabulously! Very interesting, mysterious and evocative. It devolved into a series of gory disgusting wars. Just when I was about to permanently give up on it, it got better again. None of the characters were entirely likable, including the speaker and main protagonist. She starts out likable but turns into a bitch. She is too power hungry. It makes a pretty good novel, but the war parts are boring and icky. Yes yes, I know real wars are boring and horrible, but that doesn't mean I want to read on and on about them.
