it was ok
bookshelves: fantasy, why-did-i-read-that

Sometimes my eyes glazed over when reading this book. I did skim over parts. Having said that, I enjoyed reading Imriel's journey into manhood...and that he is, at least in this book, a 'good' guy. I will say this is book is better than the first. I still miss Phedre's perspective. I think she was a much deeper character. And, her service to Naamah and her nature as Kushiel's Chosen made the sexual situations less like a tryst for a tryst's sake. I did find the political back story boorish i.e. Skaldia, the Pilgrams, etc. ...except in the case of Imriel's perceived threat to the throne. All in all, I feel like I have to complete the story arc. I did get a little teary eyed at the end which surprised me!!!
