really enjoy fantasy books
on 8 July 2014
I really, really enjoy fantasy books.I don't enjoy cruelty, gratuitous violence etc. The story in this book was a good one, but I soon realised that the cruel nastiness was going to be all through the book.
Honestly, I did persevere, but gave up when it was obvious that the book would continue in the same vein..
When I read a fantasy tale, I expect to be entertained, not sickened by well described scenes of bloody sadism.
I gave this book two stars, because although it appeared to be well written, I just didn't appreciate the content.
Shame really, this could have been a good story without all the blood and gore. I won't be reading anything else by this author.
