The world building in this fantasy novel is extensive - rarely to I encounter a fantasy world so detailed. I enjoyed Velasin and Caethari as a couple (they're perfect for each other!) and I spent much of the book wishing they could both simply just get to know each other; instead, there's a need to investigate why someone keeps trying to kill Velasin. As the violence escalates and becomes more and more entangled with Velasin's past, the consequences impact not just Velasin and Caethari, but also the diplomacy between their two countries. Overall, a fascinating read from an author I hope to read again.… (més)

I actually really liked this book. A bit of a shock at some content but mostly because I’d told people about this before I knew. But it was so beautifully written.

This book was really excellent. It has a good solid story (it's a portal fantasy), but its strengths are the characters and character development. For one, I can't remember ever having read a book with so many non-traditional characters. To start with, there are a tremendous number of women. Women of all sorts and sizes, many with competence, bravery, and character. And not to forget, positions of power. Then there are people of varied shades. Then, even more noteworthy, characters who are lesbian, aromantic, and transgender.
A second positive point is the treatment of emotion. Yes, we have a classical portal fantasy with a story that may be solid, but doesn't stand out that much. For once though, there is room for crying, for trauma, and for bewilderment. It isn't ignored; the characters feel lost some times, even the ones originating from the world the story takes place on. It feels realistic, and, well, mature.

I am very curious about the next instalment.

Loved it. Two charming and lovable characters, good world building, and murders and intrigue.
