    I enjoyed this a lot at first, in a stupid trashy way, but got bored after a while, which is why I took so long to finish it I think it reaches its height of trashy fun in Terre d Ange all the bits with Phedre living with the Skaldic tribes, getting away from them in the wintry tundra etc etc drag a lot for me Maybe it s just cos swept away by a barbarian isn t my kink.Carey has a habit of saying really obvious things in a hilariously portentous wa...

    This is going to be a very unpopular review So, to all of you who may hate me after reading this, I apologize in advance From the rave reviews, and based on the vast number of people who seemingly loved this book enough to tattoo a representation of it on their body, I expected it to blow me away I love fantasy, I love stories with a kick ass female lead, and despite the fact that this might tell you a bitabout me than you bargained f...
