did not like it
Read in June, 2012

Was given a free copy from the publisher, and although I love fantasy and read a lot of it, and am always up for reading new releases, this just didn't do it for me I'm afraid. There wasn't enough descriptive writing especially about the places visited - the places in which the story was set, I mean - and I thought the characters weren't fleshed out enough. It felt like Daniells was rushing to give us action, intrigue, new words and magics without explaining fully who and where the characters were. The cover art is too, urm, vampirey - it looks a lot like it's trying to appeal to the dark romance readers.
Such potential, but it wasn't pulled off and I didn't feel immersed enough.

Rayna So That's a shame. I was contemplating moving onto that proof next. Did you get a copy of the City's Son by Tom Pollock? That's worth a read. I really enjoyed that book.
