From what I had heard, the plot was frustrating while wonderful. Yes, it was. I couldn’t stop reading as I had to know what was happening next. And despite hating how parts of it went, the plot was perfectly done.
The characters are well crafted. They are as complex as real people are which makes the plot even more believable. I can’t help but fall in love with the dwarf. He is one of the most complex and has me enjoying him even when he is not quite so pure.
It is excellent writing. As I have said, I didn’t want to stop reading. When I got the end, I needed the next book right then and there. Oh, the patience of having to wait!!!!
There are a few warnings. There are times medieval type of crude talk, but nothing we haven’t heard before. There are many sexual references and even incest but it is not portrayed in a dirty way. It is an accepted way of their lives. There is lots of blood and gore during fight scenes and hints of the supernatural.
A great read. I love it immensely. So sorry it took me so long to get around to reading it.
Note: I purchased this book with my own funds with no expectation of a positive review.
