After finishing this book, I went into such a funk. Had I seen a Hallmark commercial of any kind, I probably would have started bawling. However, this is not to say that this book isn't fantastic. It absolutely is. This book made me think and it touched me in an obvious way. This is a quite a different reaction from many of the other books I have read, which are often meaningless ways to pass some time. This is a story about an incredibly deep romance between two people. The two participants are so different, but yet they bring out the best in each other. We find out about this romance after tragedy has struck. As you are reading a review of the book, you know that the story occurs after the death of Paul's wife Lexy and that he is seeking meaning to her death. So, the book is also largely about grief and recovering from it. I didn't want this book to end, and I read it in an afternoon. It was fantastic, hope you enjoy it too!!
It's scary, It's cool.
Engaging Characters and a good story that kept me interested. Its 'sword and sworcery' meets 'steampunk' feel turns some typical fantasy tropes on their heads while still fully embracing others. While not quite fair to say "I can't wait for the next book," I will definitely pick it up and look foward to seeing the rest of the tale play out.
My favorite book by my favorite living poet. Amazing.
