Initial comments on finishing the book. More as the discussion unfolds.

7/10—I found the first half of this book difficult to read—too many awkwardly placed adjectives and adverbs for the sentences to flow smoothly. Either I became accustomed to the author’s style or the writing changed just enough in the second half for me to really get into the story. And the story itself was a wonderful mix of familiar fantasy elements and unique additions and plot twists.

This was the first Janny Wurts novel I've read, and I enjoyed this old-fashioned high fantasy. Elienne makes a quick decision, opting for an unknown future to escape her captors. What follows takes her to a new role in a new land where she fulfills a prophecy and finds new purpose and hope. A satisfying and entertaining tale with enough twists and turns to keep me engaged.

Jim (jimmaclachlan) I really liked how there's a climax in the middle. The story seems to be heading for that point & it's there. There's a bit of a lull & the climb starts all over again to a higher peak. Woah! It's kind of her signature move. I've noticed it in her other novels.
