really liked it
bookshelves: comfort-read
Read in September, 2010

9/2010: This time, I kept stumbling over the misuse of abjure for adjure. It's driving me bonkers. Aside from that little copy editing issue, the review stands.

6/2008: Re-read. Earlier review stands.

The final volume in the escapist fantasy I've been luxuriating in lately. Lush, sensual, compelling. Not-quite Europe, but very near. The heroine is multi-faceted, brilliant and very vain, her consort is complex and troubled, their quest nearly impossible but taken on regardless. The writing is good, I think, but it's hard to tell because I fall in so far and inhabit the book.
