3.0 out of 5 stars Had a lot of promise, 9 July 2014
This book should have been amazing, fast paced and full of twists and turns. Unfortunately it was short, jumpy and wildly unpredictable. Changing from one moment to the next with very little warning or flow. It was good. I read it in one sitting, and it defiantly left a cliffhanger but mainly it just didn't answer any of the questions it raised. And that, for me, is almost unforgivable. It's not a book, it's an introduction and at the very least you'll want to wait until book 2 is out before reading. Since if you like the style better than me and find yourself drawn into the character's problems and mysteries you'll be left frustrated at the end of it.

What can I say about this book without giving too much away? Yes the characters are frequently cliche but in a way that really works. It's so good to have a strong female character who isn't fighting against some youthful horror or abandonment, someone who is simply optimistic and wants to live. It's rather inspiring.

Never quite doing what I… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars okay, 3 Jun 2014
I have loved this series but this book was a bit of a downer for me and I don't think I'll be getting the next one. There's lots of rambling and undoing of previous things. More panic about Merry's mortality spreading although in the last few books she was less mortal and her opponents in several duels survived mortal wounds. There's lots of emotional baggage and therapy talk which I thought was more Anita Blake than Merry Gentry, the lack of pyschoanalysing was one of the reasons I liked this series. But almost nothing happened in this book, perhaps if the main events had been condensed into a novella I would have liked it better. But I just couldn't bring myself to care about anything… Read more
