3-Stars for Plot and Characters, 5-Stars for world, history and language creation.
I look forward to where Ms. Addison goes is this wonderful world she's created.
There's no epic battles or daring-do here just a touch of steampunk in this political story. I found the protagonist a bit boring.
But the rich history and conspiracies make this a good read. If you like fantasy and a lot of characters and family lines this is for you.
