My Rating: 4 Stars
Fantasy is also an interesting genre to pick especially when the reader takes a chance with an author and his work for the first time. For me, this book was really beyond what I expecting in a positive way.
This is definitely a book for the mature public. From the fantasy, the sex scenes, the death scenes and the gore it shows the darkest and the most violent reality of the world. Joseph Hirsch didn't hold anything back on this book.
The medieval environment and atmosphere with the old English language were definitely one of the things that got some so much into the story in the beginning. Not only that but Hirsch doesn't make the reader wait too long before the action starts which for me is perfect since I'm an impatient reader.
I have to admit that in some parts I had to take a break since some of the scenes got to me, but I really enjoyed this book and I recommend it.
But again, definitely needs to be pointed out that it's for a mature public.
Thank you NetGalley, the publisher Black Rose Writing, and the author for allowing me to read and review a digital copy of this book.
Hope you find an idea for your next reading here.
