Lets start on a good point,the world building displayed by LKH is both this and the anita Blake series is amazing and shows a lot of imagination, its fantastic. However the problem is that the characters seem to get in the way. All through the book I was desperate to know more about the world of kiss of shadow, but instead we are forced to to tag along with (the naration is first person) Merry Gentry, a steryotipical 'strong female character' which gets borring very quickly. She's practically identical to Anita Blake in personaluty, except she lacks the sence of morals that Anita had at the begining of her series. Every male character she meets wants to have sex with her, every female is either bitchy or jealous. She is what is known as a 'Mary sue' or writer self insert character in the world of internet fanfiction. It becomes tirring quite quickly. Everytime there something interesting is about to happen, we are side tracked so merry can do something sexy or seductive, it's annoying! And the sex scenes are terrible, annoying rather than erotic.
