Honestly, I think this is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to. The distinctive voice of each character, and how the stories weaved together was great. I can't wait for the author to write another book.
I am a fan of Neil Gaiman, and would put this books in rant with "American Gods". Similarities : Back stories of gods, character origins
Differences: Diving into how a creature would observe a society removed from its homeland, expected gender roles, etc.
I found myself going "Hmmm" and smiling during the listen. For me, there are great lines and imagery throughout.
I don't pour out a lot of favor to books, and you have no idea who I am, but I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to hear a female character who isn't lovesick, a little Jewish folklore and fantasy that you could imagine to be real.
No, I don't think so.
This received such good reviews, especially with the promise of a queer female character but the story lost me.
I was really disappointed. I thought that there would have been more layers to Hild. I would have like there to be more of a fantasy element, or at least have Hild be more of a Joan of Arc character.
