There's some interesting stuff in here. Fantasy with political intrigue in a quasi medieval setting. The story telling is unusual, with the reader expected to piece together the world, the characters and the story as we go along. Not bad, fairly readable, but I didn't connect with any of the characters despite their inner emotional turmoil. Particularly didn't feel the romance was believable. I would have liked a little more story with characters fleshed out, but it may not have particularly been the author's intent to have us like her characters.

Still, I liked The Silver Bowl more than this. However, it won't keep me from reading her companion book, Nightspell. That's next on my list.
