it was amazing
bookshelves: favorites

This epic fantasy about a world that suffers frequent - and often apocalyptic - cataclysms is oddly paced at first, as the author spits her tale between three different timelines (one of which is told in the 2nd person). I can't even suggest the ingenious way they all come together without spoiling the whole thing, but stick with it - it pays off big time. Amazing world-building, grand-scale storytelling, and intimate character portraits - everything a lover of epic fantasy could want from a novel.
