Snyder</a><br/>
My rating: <a href="https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1329877568">4 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
I was hesitant to read Maria V Snyder's work because I was so certain I would be wading through yet another generic fantasy but I was pleasantly surprised. The pacing is excellent, the characters kept me interested and Ms Snyder's world building is smooth. <br>Told in first person from the main character's perspective.<br>I enjoyed reading this one so much I forgot to go to sleep and finished the novel overnight and picked up the next in the series without bothering to go to bed. Two nights later I closed the cover on the third.<br><br>I would highly recommend this series for any fantasy lover. It has good characters, plenty of misadventures, political clashes, death, mayhem, magic and love.
