Top critical review
Vivid, beautiful world, lost momentum a little.
on 10 March 2017
Pretty good- lovely vivid start and world building but I felt that it really started to lose momentum in the second half and ended up skimming through the final chapters (something I never normally do). I also found the main character difficult to like, though I think that is intended so can't say that it is a great criticism. Great to read something about Egypt though! Beautifully rich world-building and imagery.
