I never know to say in these things. I guess that says something about me. I read a lot, write stories, and like books. I like a good debate. Nothing else is to say. :-)
Wow. I loved the world that was created in this book...it was so rich with history and mythology and legend. It was beautifully created and realized. I liked Karou and I found her resentment at Brimestone's secret understandable and Akiva's anger and despair...both do things that I don't agree with and hate...but I still understand and like their characters and relate to them. It ended on a bittersweet note, and I hope that in the future Karou can find her happiness again..as this story continues and she forgives and breaks the cycle of war and pain that she and Akiva dreamed of. Of making the world new. I really enjoyed the book and look forward to the next installment.
