If you like fantasy intrigues, assassins and plots, politics and puzzles...give it a try.

I have to admit, I found it hard to get hooked into this - but it's very definitely me! The writing is good, and the tensions and interactions between the characters are very nicely done. The world's got nothing particularly unique, but this doesn't really matter, as the fairly simple set-up allows for more detail of the political tensions and intricacies of the plots. It's got a relatively quick pace, and I think if I'd been more invested in the characters then I would have enjoyed the pace...but eh, it's just me. So if you like fantasy intrigues, assassins and plots, politics and puzzles...give it a try.
