I am surprised at some of the negative reviews . . .
Reviewed in the United States on November 1, 2016
I always check out the one-star reviews on a book I think about buying. Some of the negatives for this one were scathing, so I . . . ahem . . . found a way to get a good look at a chapter or two before committing my money.
I liked what I saw enough to go back and buy it for my Kindle.
Some of the negatives complained that the sentence structure was too simple. I have no idea what they meant. I found the writing clear and well-flowing.
It was a quick read; I think I was through it in a day, or perhaps two. But I found the story entertaining, and there are still some unresolved questions at the end of the book, so I am ready to get the next one, and reviews be hanged!
I am a fan of G. R. R. Martin. I generally like science fiction, but I like a well-written fantasy or medieval now and again. This one is loosely based on the War of the Roses, but in a fantasy land with a bit of water-magic.
I'd say give this a shot. It isn't the best thing I've ever read, but then, not much can be, can it? It's a solid little medieval fantasy, and I look forward to seeing where the story goes next.
