Mayim de Vries | 2864 comments Interesting, short series and on my TBR already but I am swamped this month so if I end up here, I'll be late.

I've just started this morning. I've read the first chapter and so far I think it's great. I did take me an hour to read 18 pages though, which is insane. So I think this one will take me a while, it's not absorbing into my brain easily and I was having to reread parts to understand what I'd read.

Bas is interesting. We've been told over and over that he's a great fighter, good enough to kill a god. I want to see it. So I'm excited for a big battle to show his skills.


Arka (ruineleint) 14 chapters in

I love reading her character. She is at the centre of everything.

She really is. I get the feeling that nothing happens without her approval.


Choko (chokog) | 5103 comments Just got to Ch. 2... Interested to see if it is based on stories of the real Iliryan mythology...

Ooh I don't think I know anything at all about this so that could be cool.


Choko (chokog) | 5103 comments I am up to Ch 12, and honestly, I am not sure what exactly is going on. I get the human political intrigue, after all, it is always about power and influence. Eudokia is really good at it. I enjoy her chapters because I understand the game. However, once it comes to those humans and the different mixes with avian creatures, I have no idea what the rules of the world are. Maybe I am rushing it and have to wait for things to unroll in their own time, just usually by this point in a book I have a better grasp of things...


message 14: by Arka (new) - rated it 4 stars

Arka (ruineleint) Finished, I really enjoyed it. Clearly this book has a lot of set up elements in it. but I really really want to read the sequel now


Choko (chokog) | 5103 comments Ok, I got to Ch. 14 and I am starting to see where we are going. The big human loss, where Eudokia's husband died 25-30 years ago; the bird people wanting to teach them another lesson since some signs of rebellion are starting to come up again; a ton of foreshadowing... Now we are getting somewhere...
