This reads like the other Kingfisher books I've read(the Clocktaur Wars and paladins Grace) ,which i enjoyed, but with out any exciting action, characters and storyline which only leaves the cheesy love story.
Basically average women meets exceptionally good looking warrior, they both love each other but lack confidence or brain power to work it out. Yada yada yada... they have sex in the end for 20 pages than talk about there feeling for another 20. The end.
Halla was Painful.
Sarkis was Painful.
Somewhere in the middle they venture in the "Vagrant Hills" and there are some interesting characters and ideas and I was really hoping they were going to build on that, i felt it had potential to really give the book some substance but no, it quickly reverted back to a sappy PAINFUL love story...
If your like me and have to finish a book once you start it than do yourself a favour and don't. Maybe try Clockwork boys and The Wonder Engine if you want to give T.Kingfisher a go ...
