An intricate story with complex, diverse–if not a bit confusing–characters. The best part is that history is woven into the narrative, a piece of history that was unfamiliar to me.
The writing is wonderful, rich and creative. Many times I simply paused in awe of the author’s ability to describe a scene or individual.
My only complaint is that the characters remain underdeveloped. I finished the story feeling as if even the protagonist was holding something back from me. He remained mysterious. Certainly, all the supporting characters seems that way.
Overall, a very enjoyable read.
