Will I read more from this Author? I'm not sure...
It was at the 80% mark that I realized no one had names in this book, except Lo-Melkhiin, but that could have been a title for him, and Sokath, His Eyes Uncovered (yeah that's what he was called every time). Even the main character, the girl, does not have a name, other than Sister or Wife. Everyone has a title (like brother, sister, or mother) instead of a name…it was all very odd…
The writing style in this book is less than desirable for me. I struggled at the beginning…but then somewhere along the way, I found this story's flow and was more and more interested in where it was going. Ultimately, I'm glad I stuck with this until the end, because it kind of blew my mind just how beautiful it really was…
Sex Factor: None, hardly even a mention…
