My MusingsThis really captured my imagination as soon as I started reading it. I love Greek myth and was entranced by the description of the minotaurs, the ruthless city Caeli-Amur and its characters. I love the kind of book mixing fantasy and myth. Davidson is obviously highly proficient and maybe that's the problem. The world he builds up became to dense for me. I mean it was weighted down with too much description and is so complex I found it getting int he way of the story. I loved the characters and their bid for survival but I lost them to the plot of the book which at times I found difficult t follow. Maybe I was tired!Its a shame as I did like his world a lot but felt the editor needed to have stepped in on several more occasions.He seemed to forget about his reader he was so seduced by the world he had created. I will try to read it again and will look out for others as he is a very talented writer with a distinctive style. Definitely not run of the mill.
This is what i would definitely call a diamond in the rough and still well worth a read. I am sure there are many who will love the whole premise
ps. loved this cover so I hope they stick with this it is so striking.
