I picked this up for book club. It isn’t a book that I would have picked up on my own. I had difficulty with trying to figure out who to root for, since it seemed that the characters were switching sides frequently.
The story was good, but a little confusing as far as the characters go. It was worth reading, though.
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.
The above linked article tells about the gender gap in sci fi writers. As time goes by, there are more and more women writing sci fi. The article tells about writers in the past, and how the writing has changed over the years. Way to go, ladies!
While I do love this series, this one just didn’t grab me like the others have. It’s needed to keep the series going, and we need to know what is going on with the characters, but the other books in the series were better.
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.
