Poor Book, Poor Narration
I've enjoyed other series by Sara Douglass and was looking forward to this book and the rest of the series but I was greatly disappointed. I found the storyline to be boring, slow and lacking in any complexity. It appears to have been targetted at a feminine audience, so much so that I found it cringe-worthy at times. I also struggled with the narrator. Nothing against women narrators but please, stick to subtle voice modulation only. The attempts at trying to come across with a deep, masculine tone, in particular for the Brutus character were truly awful and almost enough to stop me bothering to finish the book.
