Slow build, but a stunning story.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shadow And Betrayal: Book One of The Long Price (Paperback)
I have to say I loved this book, or duo of books, they were not the fastest action paced books I've read, but I think these books would have been spoiled that way.
It's more about the relationships, the desire, the manifestation of godly power and the cost of this. It really is a slow build, it's more of a proper story than a blockbuster film.
It's also about how people react and respond to each other, a pose states a million things, whereas the Galts are a very different group of people.
The magic system alone is worth reading about, magic is brought into the world by an idea, that idea is personified and then embodied, if it goes wrong, there's a price to pay. But that barely hints at the power, the magic is as powerful as god hood.
Read this book, enjoy it slowly, revel in the next book.
