The language and imagery in this book are beautiful. The ending is kind of a let-down. It's just sort of implausible. Does someone who kills a priest care about honoring his oath? And then, if he DOES care, why doesn't he honor it all the way through? There are just some inconsistencies.

The story does also seem to plod at points. But overall I enjoyed it.
