4.0 out of 5 stars took some getting into, 25 April 2013

This review is from: Rosemary and Rue (Mass Market Paperback)
I came to really like this book, but for some reason it took me quite a while to get to grips with it. I found the writing style quite difficult and often had to re-read paragraphs to work out what the author and/or character was actually saying and what that meant for our heroine and the background story (describing the world, the different factions etc). It probably would have been fine if this had been the third or fourth book, but I found it quite hard-going initially getting a feel for the world, the rules etc. That being said, it engaged me enough for tears (mine) at one point (I won't spoil it by saying when). The plot wasn't especially complicated and the culprit became clear well before s/he was revealed in the book. Extra points to the author for the glossary of fey names and how to pronounce them.
