it was ok
bookshelves: fantasy, 2007
Read in October, 2007

** spoiler alert ** Sara Douglass books always start off interesting, but by about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way in, I've always lost interest. Yet I keep trying. Why is that?

For fantasy fans, another good premise. The Great Serpent commands its high priestess to marry a king to save the world. She does. Then she gets kidnapped (while pregnant) and taken to a neighboring (somewhat unfriendly) kingdom as a price for its ruler, only to discover that the king is actually a god that she has encountered before. She marries the godking because she thinks her former husband hates her. Evil still manages to get free of its prison, and now we have to wait for Book 2.

I hope I've learned my lesson this time and remember to leave Book 2 on the shelf when I see it.
