The fun of reading a fantasy like this one is the world building. The author creates an entire world with dress, food, rituals, etc. The trick is to introduce these new things to the reader without the reader feeling like he is getting a civics lesson. I, unfortunately, read this in a place where I was constantly interrupted. It deserves to be read without distractions so the reader is totally immersed in the place and can enjoy the new and unusual surroundings. Give yourself a quiet place with a bowl of snacks, turn off the phone and other disruptions and you will be rewarded!
My rating for this book:
