Alright, here's the space to spoil away. Who lives, who dies, who gets with who, what surprised you? :)

Wendy Ryan | 7 comments I listened to this on audiobook. It was fast paced and I got through it quite quickly. It was only an average read for me as the gangster warfare, very plot driven focus and the regular fight scenes weren't really for me. I enjoyed some of the world building, especially the interludes depicting the religious background to the society and enjoyed the scenes where the female characters interacted. The scene between Shae and Ayt Mada was particularly good and I wished that we'd had more of it. The writing included a lot of telling rather than showing and everything the characters were feeling was spelled out. There was very little left for the reader to work out, which I found frustrating. I could see this novel being a good basis for a movie or TV series but it wasn't really my cup of tea as a reader.
