non mi piacciono le campagne elettorali, non mi piacciono i maghi e non mi piace Sabetha
il libro complessivamente invece si

The audiobook was well-read. I'm not entirely into the whole medieval times motif, but I found it entertaining. I'll light 3.5 Alchemical Globes out of 5 Alchemical Globes. (there is a lot of stuff that is "alchemical" in this book)
