I was excited to read this book because the description made it sound very much like Susanna Clarke's writing, and I really like her. She, however, is a woman, unlike Erick Setiawan who comes off as a narrow-minded, slightly misogynist guy.

The writing is absolutely beautiful. The way the magic within the story becomes complete interwoven and simply accepted by both the characters and the reader is really well done. I just with the plot had been a little more inventive than women being hateful to each other. And I really disliked the ending.
