Will I continue this series? I might...
As long as you go into this knowing there is NO demons in this story, because for me Sin-Eating suggests demons, then you won't be completely disappointed. I think it's more of an historical/medieval sort of fantasy-ish type of story, from way back, like, way WAY back, with some courtly like intrigue and freakish beliefs thrown into the mix.
While I had some issues with it, I don't really think it's a bad story. There is a sort of love-triangle and it is paced a little slow at times. I found my mind wandering while I was listening, only to realize I was probably missing something important to the story. I'm fairly certain this happened quite a few times.
I apologize if I made the decision on whether or not you wanted to read this even harder to make. Oh yeah, while it took me a couple hours into this to decide how I felt about the narrator, I did end up liking her and I feel this is one of those books that's made better on Audio.
Sex Factor: Yes, there is sex…it's not explicit…in fact I was confused at first on whether it happened at all.
