I have tried to read this several times as my husband loved it so much. I am not into the old language that Ms. Carey uses to tell a tale. I had a hard time with the names of places and people so I gave it up. Then I found it recorded so I could listen to the story while I read it. Anne Flosnik narrated it so well that I was hooked by the second paragraph.

Many get into or are turned off by the sexual escapades but the sex isn't blatant but rather an important part of the tale. Humble servant, quiet and well trained uses her art and oath and the paths she must travel weave substance into our reality.

I am not a history buff, nor am I very good at geography but this story made me feel a need to start studying both subjects more deeply. Obviously, Jacqueline Carey has done her research.
