Love this universe!
April 13, 2018
I love diving back into this universe. No matter who the story focuses on, I just love the BDB world. I guess it probably depends on whether you’re a Vishous fan or not, how you will embrace this story. I love Vishous, he’s my favorite brother, so I loved his and Jane’s story line. And I think it was handled well. I think Vishous was sufficiently repentant, and I think both of their issues were brought to the forefront and dealt with. And to those who say Vishous was not his old self, I say that he’s evolving and that’s a good thing.
I also loved Assail and Sola’s story, but like many readers, I’m concerned about how their future will work out.
I think this was a transition book of sorts. Seems like we’re on the cusp. New enemy, new deity, possible new surgeon (maybe Manny/Butch/Jo Early’s father), Murhder. I’m dying to know who stole the book!
I loved the funny moments! The turkey/stuffing/mashed/no veggies scene between V and Phury was hysterical, as well as the My Little Pony PJ pants.
I thought some of the scenes were a little too drawn out, focusing too much on the setting. Ms. Ward has too much story to tell to need any filler. But maybe I was just too anxious to get to the action. Can’t wait til the next book!
