What begins as a slightly benign simulation of reality in a creative setting quickly ascends to be a thoroughly enjoyable exploration of religion, duty and virtue.
I picked this up as a light read and was pleasantly enthralled by the the depth of Roquet's work. I was quickly engaged by her allusions to both modern and traditional religion. I found that I warmed to the characters despite my initial concerns of them being too stereotypically portrayed and the threat that despite a great setting the narrative would become cloying.
Roquet is clearly very intelligent. She has done her research and she has presented a fantastical world full of lessons. I found myself reminded of things I had long forgotten, engaged by ideas I had never found and delighted by her presentation.
Any author who can douse an enjoyable story with as much philosophy deserves significant praise. While at times it may seem trite, what's compelling about this story is how delicately, considerately, and at times beautifully, this story is weaved.
There's more than a little to evidence worthy of comparing this book to the works of Pratchett or Gaimon. And that's very high praise!
No.... setting the scene and mechanics of the book whilst keeping the narrative going just did not happen. I did not identify with the heroine she seems to be a being without any energy or decision making abilities.
Just not for me.
I struggled with it from the off. I never quite got the gist of what it was all about. Was it just about finding a replacement and the insider? Huh.
Then I'm disappointed. I wanted more of something, anything. I won't be continuing the series.
800 years of calm between the realms, begins to shake. Political maneuvering and alliances are sensing weakness in Grims steel grip on limbo city. one lone reapers who skates by doing the bare minimum due to feeling like a slave to an ungrateful master Grim. Finds after 300yrs all isn't as it seems, first book sets the stage for a force to be reckon with. A reaper with no care for bulls***, double deals, and ego... Learns lessons about playing well with others, and knowing when to cut to the point via her axe.
With all books of this nature, scenes amd stages have to be made in the mind, but the joy of series books is there are less in the following.
I enjoyed this book very much and will be following with the next two while the stage is still set.
