's review

it was amazing

For a first novel, it's amazingly accomplished. Its theme is revenge and abuse of power, particularly that of men over women, parents over children and the wealthy over the poor. The plots intertwine in a satisfying way, but at 535 pages, it's a long start to a long trilogy, and as a result there are parts that dragged a little - the central mystery was solved at around the 400-page mark, but there were another 100 pages to settle a sub-plot, but I read to the end and will try the next instalment, so it feels churlish to dock a star just because it was a little long.
