Fun, harrowing, a bit of a tearjerker. Not at all formulaic YA sf/f fare. Easily comparable to Tamora Pierce's works! Need to get on ordering the rest of the series before the warehouse decides to tell me NO!

MOTH. MIKKI. A depressing tale with Mesopotamian tones. An alternate take on Arthurian legend. Some 10th century English-Danish battles.

Fabulous.

:')

Fun collection with some twists on familiar-ish tales, some fresh stories, and much female badassery.

It started off nicely. A woman is searching for an assassin because her goddess told her to. And I will start with that. I liked this world, there are Gods and Goddesses everywhere, every spring, lake and river. A very old sort of religion. There are also wizards in this worlds, and a few devils that has come into the world. Nasty beings. There is also talk of demons as we meet a half demon.A lot to work with. A world of clans, fights and citystates

Ok so that is the world so far. Deyandara is the woman riding to find her assassin. Her story was interesting and I liked her. Ahjvar is the assassin and his story is even more interesting. He has some serious issues. He has a servant called Ghu who I at first did not think much about but then he grew on me. I really wonder what he is about.

And then there were more! Yes I would have liked to follow these along but suddenly a lot more sprung up and I did not see much or any of them. I did miss them with that and I will not you about the rest cos some things can be secrets.

The book takes place mostly in Marakand. A city where old Gods fell and the Lady become the prime Goddess. But who is the Lady, she was not like that before. It's a city where her soldiers are to be feared, a city where something is wrong.

Conclusion:
An interesting start. A war is coming too, I do like war. And what will happen to Marakand?
