I was enjoying the story, even with the continual political jabs, which admittedly did date it considerably, but then...
it climaxed and ended a'la "The Lady or the Tiger?"
It felt contrived, like the whole story had been a waste of my energy reading it.
Too bad, I really enjoyed it up until the "end."
Very enjoyable, a bit slow and tedious at first with the character introductions, but once really I got into it I could hardly put it down.
I love the breezy fantasy and sci-fi mixture.
I look forward to reading more from this author.
I absolutely loved this book, from the prologue to the epilogue, I really enjoyed it. Sly & rich fare, the breezy prose belies its true intensity. As other reviews have noted, the editing is not without flaw, but really, it was no big deal.
I am craving more from the Nicola Rhodes.
