Publisher's Summary

One unexpected pregnancy is a drama; fifty thousand is citywide hysteria. Cursed with endless drowsiness, Enchantress Hiresha sleeps more than she lives. Since she never has had a chance to raise a family, she sometimes feels like every woman is pregnant except for her. This time, she is right.

From virgin to grandmother, all the women in her city have conceived. A lurking sorcerer drains power from the unnatural pregnancies, and Hiresha must track him by his magic. Unfortunately, her cultured education in enchantment ill equips her to understand his spellcraft, which is decidedly less than proper. The only person uncivilized enough to help is the Lord of the Feast, a dangerous yet charming illusionist. Associating with him may imperil Hiresha's city, yet refusing his help will allow the sorcerer to leech godlike power from the mass births.

    "A feast of the imagination"

    No, really, imaginations will be feasted upon in this book's refreshingly original tapestry of magics and their practitioners.

    Story
    "Will put you to sleep"
    Would you try another book from A. E. Marling and/or Henrietta Meire?

    Most likely not


    What was most disappointing about A. E. Marling’s story?

    The character had some sort of insomnia issue and was constantly falling a sleep an only in her mind while sleeping could she be normal. With all the drowsy talking it was difficult to get through the book. I fell a sleep many times before I finally could finish it and the evil person was to easy to figure out before the end of the book.

    Unless you are looking for a book to put you to sleep, this is a difficult story to get through.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narrator did a good job portraying the woman who simply could not stay a wake, so well I could not stay awake. Honestly, I don't know how she stayed awake in telling it.


    What character would you cut from Brood of Bones?

    honestly, it needs a rewrite
