  1. So, with that kindle picture at the end (or whichever ereader it is), is that picture real? Or is it one of those photoshop the cover into a kindle frame? I didn’t even realize that was a thing until I saw another blogger do a whole post about some of the picture tricks they use. It was quite eye opening.

  2. I love your description of the main character’s voice, which adds a new level of interest in this book for me! From your words I’ve come to picture the tone of this novel as similar to Abercrombie’s gallows humor, which is one of my favorite elements: if I was eager to read the new Buehlman book before, now I can hardly wait… Great review, thanks for sharing! 🙂

    1. I really think that his voice is what is most likely to intrigue you first and then the world-building, also done through his character! While I’m not completely certain about the Abercrombie comparison, I feel like it’s exactly that and I wouldn’t be surprised if it is! I hope you have a fantastic time with this when you finally get around to it, Maddalena! Thank you so much for reading. 😀

  3. This is one I’d certainly like to try. I keep hearing good things about it, and though that’s no guarantee I’ll enjoy it, it is a pretty good indication I might. 🙂 Thanks for the review, Lashaan.

  4. The mythology of this world sounds brilliant and, I love the fact that it comes into play in the story itself and isn’t just used as a prop to expand on the world-building. I’m so happy you enjoyed this one. I can’t wait to read it now.
