‘An unusually scholarly writer of fantasy.’
‘Much as I dislike comparing anything to THE LORD OF THE RINGS, I have to admit that on this occasion it’s justified.’

Versus Game of Thrones, Malazan and Wheel of Time this is a much happier and easier read; the world and locations are smaller, the plot less convoluted and everything follows a medium sized caste who each have their own importance in the grand scheme. It's the sort of thing you want to read when you just want to *enjoy* a book and not be taken through a mental and emotional wringer each chapter. Likewise you don't find yourself losing track of characters and locations if you put the book down for a few days. In no way does this imply Kerr's book is a lesser work - it's just written in a very different timbre.
Would definitely recommend Kerr for any fantasy fan who fancies trying something different.
Although in the grand scheme everything is linked this comes 'later' in the overall telling so if you want to understand and appreciate the key characters and events more I'd recommend reading some of her earlier novels.
