If you love fantasy politics, it may work for you
Interesting, if not always captivating.
If happy, fairy tale romance is what you're looking for, this is it.
A pleasant, fairly enjoyable read, propelled largely by MacAvoy's engaging prose and style.
Tedious and slow going.
A pleasant but forgettable novel.
It's a great idea only half thought through.
I recommend it as an example of a well-executed shared world, as well as a pleasure to read.
A collection for fans, not casual readers.
Fun and light before it bogs down in its indecision.
A decent, accomplished, but in no way surprising book
Undemanding light fantasy.
