I was dubious after reading the reviews but I am a true fantasy reader in all its forms. That being said I like the hopeless situation that Hobb has placed the characters in, the unknown of the auxiliary characters, there is no tralala everything is wonderful in this book actually the plot though fantastical is peopled with realistic characters no perfect good or evil. Another thing is Flosnik is very easy to listen to and after a while she allows u to "hear" ur characters. I actually am looking forward to the next book.
There is no point to this story the idea while great fell flat in the telling. With sulky self centered characters and no development. They were two dimensional. I hope the author warms up to her subject in the next book or I won't finish the series
I hate the horribly even monotone Eric Dove ruins this book with I can't even tell if the story is good over my own snoring its like listening to that dry eye commercial for hours ugh snore zzzz
I liked it it was light reading requiring no deep thoughts. Entertaining if u read this book expect it to be superfluous don't go into it looking for depth. It is a good tale with an interesting cast of characters
Yes it is good. If u like Christine Feehan, Sherilyn Kenyon, and books in that genre u will love this. I had read J.R. Ward b4 and didn't like the book but it was a different series full of gangs and slang and rap music references bleh .....This has those but not in excess.
I spent half this book going crazy with the pure arrogance and selfishness of the little spoiled brat. Her stupidity is mind goggling. I just don't know what to say. I am still reading the next one though. Shhh don't tell anyone.
This is a ghost story... A story of prophecy and betrayal the hero/heroine is badly damaged. All the characters in this story are stumbling around blindly just as they should be gone are the days of omnipotent wizards and silly intervening gods. Dragons are where they belong in the books about them. I love fantasy in all it's forms. Especially dragons fairies vampires and werewolves...... This is a ghost story. I absolutely love it. It captured me I have only one complaint ... Where is my emphatic character? I can't identify with anyone in the story.
Get them all.. This is a must have for fantasy readers it has everything action adventure mystery love hate villians and the end of the world
