I enjoyed this audiobook.

I love fantasy, but have tired of elves, trolls, and demons plots. This was refreshing and I will listen to the Broken Kingdom next.

Great Writing, Fantastic Worldbuilding

I thought this book was well-written with some fantastic world-building, and I liked it (I'd give it a half star more if I could), but I didn't love it. The main character felt a little underdeveloped and I didn't completely connect with her, but I thought the personalities of the Enefadeh were really well done. If you like your Fantasy a little heavier on the philosophical overtones and political intrigue, you'll probably enjoy this. There is also an overarching romantic theme, but the romance (and the sexy times) are fairly abstract. It was a little bit hard to follow on audiobook, but it was very well done.
