I liked the first part of “Treason’s Daughter” the most. My interest began to waver in part two, and by the third part I was only reading to see how it ended.

One of the charms of the opening chapters is Henrietta’s different relationships with her family members and with her first love. The author does a good job of making these varying contrasts work well.

As Henrietta grows older, moving away from her early life, the initial appeal that first hooked me also drifts away.

Regarding style, I feel the author would’ve made the narrative more vivid if she’d used more muscular verbs.

For instance, there’s always a stronger verb than “look” – as in the way a person looks at something or somebody – yet Ms Senior uses “look” every time. The quote below is an example:

>They stand and look at each other.
A voice breaks in. ‘Pudding cat!’
They look over towards the bed. ( )
