I picked this one up for bookclub. I enjoyed it very much, although a lot of the romance and sex scenes were unnecessary. The story was great, but the last chapter before the epilogue went on and on about the logistics of dowries. Again, I felt that it wasn’t needed.

I laughed a lot about the logistics of body fluids and living in a sword. This was a conversation that I think I would have had with friends.

I would recommend this book, but the reader needs to be able to skip through these sections.

I picked up this book for bookclub. I don’t know that I would have read it otherwise, but I am glad I did. The book was a little strange, but the story’s pieces all fit together by the end. 

This was well worth the read. I wouldn’t call it fun, but it sucked me into the story right away. It kept me guessing for most of the book. I enjoyed it and may reread it one of these days.

I picked this book up for bookclub. It’s not my usual type of book, but I figured I’d give it a try. I really enjoyed it. The members of my bookclub who had read it assured me that it would be really funny. While I did find a lot of humor in it, I would not call it a funny book. 

I did enjoy Smudge, the pet spider. He didn’t have a speaking part, but he added a lot of levity to the book. 

I look forward to reading the other books in this series, eventually. I would definitely recommend the book.

This third book in the series is just as good as the others I have read so far. I love the stories, but this one started out very slow, too. I had to finish it quickly to find out what happened to the characters. I’m looking forward to the next two that are already published and the 6th that comes out in April of 2021.

I heard great things about this book, so I was interested in reading it. I am never sure if I’m going to like the same things about a book that everyone else does, so I take these things with a grain of salt. I loved it almost from the start. 

The story was very thought-provoking even though it was definitely fiction. I did figure out the the ending about 3/4 of the way through, but, as always, the adventure is in the journey, even if we do know the ending. 

The book kept my attention all the way through. It is one that I will continue to think about for years to come. I definitely recommend this book.
