I thought the book was very enjoyable to read and very descriptive if not a little to descriptive at times. There were some frustrating moments where the descriptions would get away, I thought, from the story and they would be very long, such as the description of the past of a character, and was often repeated throughout the book and all you wanted it to do was go on with the story. Sometimes, although not often, these lenghthy descriptions would be done in the middle of some action going on in the book which could be even more frustrating. There were also times that you would read a sentence a few times over not understanding what it had to do with anything or even what it was saying but then, moving past it, you would understand it later. All in all I thought that despite this it was a great book with interesting characters that you could feel for and even identify with. A book for those who like lenghthy explanations and long novels.

I am a huge fan of Michelle West/Sagara, and the second installation of the Sun Sword series does not disappoint. I would rate the book FIVE stars. However, i can only give the Nook book version of this novel THREE stars because of the terrible formatting. I was lucky enough to have read the paperback version of the text before buying the nook version. However, those who are not already familiar with the novel will struggle with the nook text because the original formatting was not preserved properly. West writes chapters that each contain numerous narratives: they may be written by different characters or may have occured after a jump in the timeline. In the paperback version, these narratives are broken up by a double paragraph break (basically just extra space between the paragraphs) that signals to the reader that there is a change in narrative. But the nook version did not preserve any of those extra paragraph breaks so the narratives are indistinguishable from each other, making the text very confusing and difficult to read because you dont know when the perspective and context has suddenly changed. Penguin publishing did this novel and author a great disservice by being careless with formatting of the nook version.

Without a doubt the most deeply developed characters in fantasy. Thank you, I truly appreciate this work of art. While you could read this book on its own it's better to start from the very beginning and enjoy every moment of this incredible series

It really irritates me when a book in a series is not available for nook. This book is not a\vailable, however 1, 3, 4, 5, and 6 are available. I don't think I will be reading anymore of this series.
