I obtained this book thru the LT Member Giveaway process. I found that the story captured my attention immediately - I liked the main character De La Roca very much. Somewhere or other I had gotten it into my head that I had read she was not a very likeable character. Perhaps I'm confused and getting my titles mixed up, but I found nothing to dislike. She was tough, but not over-the-top unbelievable bad-ass. Each chapter was very short so I never felt pressured to keep going til the end as I sometimes do with less interesting stories. In fact, I found myself reading more than I intended, and staying up later than I intended because the author was able to keep my attention. My very favorite character was De La Roca's horse, Alsvior. Not only was he loyal and magical and tough, but he was unintentionally comical as well. I could read a book just from his point-of-view. Ms. Violante writes beautifully, intelligently, and the world she builds is incredible. True, I did find myself confused about who was who, what was what, etc. quite often, but I blame myself for that, not the author. Due to the main character's situation, the book has to be this way. We are learning along with De La Roca and she herself is confused. At times, I felt I needed more info ... that somehow I should have read a certain book before this one to know what was going on. There are layers and layers here and we are thrown into the story that happens to be kinda the middle of a story. All is made clear(er) as we read on. Again, I blame myself for not fully appreciating this, not the author for her style of writing. I think Ms. Violante will enjoy a success with her characters and storyline here. I would love to see this in graphic novel form! ( )
