Top critical review
Another good book from the Liveship world, but with too much sexual angst added.
on 4 January 2013
This book follows closely on from the Tawny Man trilogy though changing the perspective to that of the new Dragons and Rain Wilders.
It follows the pattern of other Hobb books and feels like the start of a trilogy with lots of time being spent introducing the main characters and explaining their backgrounds and motivation. This however is also one of its failings the author spends too much time on the sexual preferences of certain characters adding detail where none is required.
This would have been a 4 star review if she could cut down on the gratuitous sex and spend more time on the main plot line. It won't stop me buying the next book but I'll probably read something else first.
