    It s clear that Patricia Briggs can work the same magic for traditional fantasy that she does with her urban fantasy and werewolf stories for this reader I loved this story I must admit that there were parts that were slower and harder to read, and that s due to the intricacies of the worldbuilding keep in mind, I don t read a lot of heavy duty, traditional heroic fantasy so keep the urge to sneer under wraps if you ve read a lot of that and consider this book child s play Having said that It s clear that Patricia Briggs can work the same magic for traditional fantasy th...

    I loved the overall plot and the intricacies of the magic of the Travelers and the solsenti or regular humans There were so many abilities, and various ways of doing magic It was all extremely interesting and well thought out I also loved Tier and the children s characters They were all so loyal, protective, kind, and good that it was just heartwarming Seraph took me a lot longer to like due to her coldness which was necessary to keep her magic in check, but thankfully she found a way to sh I loved the overall plot and the intricacies of the magic of the Travelers and the solsenti or regular humans There were so many abilities, and various ways of doing magic It was all extremely interesting and well thought out I also loved Tier and the children s characters They were all so loyal, protective, kind, and good that it was just heartwarming Seraph took me a lot longer to like due to her coldness which was necessary to keep her magic in check, but thankfully she found a way to shoulder her magic and allow herself emotions So in the end I just adored their entire family Also, the character of the Emperor who started out as an annoyance proved himself and his worth by the end I can see him becoming a great figure in their world and their history My issues with the book was the pacing, which is hard to understand as the plot seemed to unveil itself and it ...

    Halfway through, I m surprised by this book It felt like it was going to head one direction, then it fooled me and went another direction entirely I m glad, since the first direction wasn t the way I wanted to head.This is only the second series I ve read by Briggs Like her Mercy Thompson books, this has some wonderful characterization and very smooth writing The setting is a muchtraditional fantasy one, tho...

    I went into this with pretty low expectations I just figured it would be Mercy Thompson with no electricity I don t know why I doubted Brigg s ability to write both Paranormal and atrue Fantasy, but I did doubt And she proved me wrong The world building here was very well done Enough was explained in the beginning to satisfy me, and thenwas slowly revealed It was well written and I can t wait to read the next book.My only complaint is something that I have noticed in the Mercy I went into this with pretty low expe...

    I was expecting another fantasy coming of age novel, but that s not what this is It turned out to be quite different There were a lot of unexpected little twists and turns I think some aspects of the plot could have beenfully explained, but that might have slowed down the story It was nice to have a story with a family full of characters, rather than a single main character seeking his her fortune The num...

    I read 90 pages of this and gave up I went to a Patricia Briggs book signing recently and she made fun of some of her early writings, saying They really will publish anything, and now I get what she meant It s not that the story is bad, it s just that the writing is not one tenth as tight as Ms Briggs current works I can t explain it, but somehow I just don t care much about what happens next This is a traditional fantasy set in a world where magic is known and sometimes feared Seraph, o I read 90 pages of this and gave up I went to a Patricia Briggs book signing recently and she made fun of some of her early writings, saying They really will publish anything, and now I get what she meant It s not that the story is bad, it s just that the writing is not one tenth as tight as Ms Briggs current works I can t explain it, but somehow I just don t care much about what happens next This is a traditional fantasy set in a world where magic is known and sometimes feared Seraph...
