Reviews of Twenty Palaces by Harry Connolly

Corwin Watts reviewed on April 30, 2012

This prequel novel to a trilogy was a tough read, at times. The main character, Ray, spends a good amount of time reacting rather than acting. Which is not surprising considering he's rather out of his depth having just gotten out of prison, trying to create a new life for himself, and discovering magic is real.
The only problem I had was is near constant internal dialog of victimization, his own or seeing others as victims. Not that he wants to victimize them, as he constantly says in his head, but...

Still the action was good and the magic of the story is well thought out.
