Full Disclosure - I got this book as part of the StoryBundle Fan
Full Disclosure - I got this book as part of the StoryBundle Fantasy bundle. I did not buy it from Barnes and Noble.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I read a lot, and many times give up on books halfway through. Definitely not this one. The authors have invented an intriguing world and a compelling character in Duchess. The world resembles the Florentine Republic with its Machiavellian politics and mores. The most interesting thing about it is the fact that, although magic obviously exists, it does not play an obvious part in this world (yet).
An intriguing and interesting read. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.

I couldn't put it down!
I loved this book! It had great characters I could really care about, a richly imagined world I could get lost in, and a story that had depth and details that a Tolkein fan like me loves, but that even a more casual reader would enjoy.Was this review helpful?

And the cover art is gorgeous! Amy Houser, the artist, is amazing!
