Still, even without help she is pretty intelligent, and figures things out quicker than I ever could. Mainly, there is not enough information. Andellen peeled himself off the far wall.

I swear, there are so many repetitionsso much info dumping and blah blah blah here, you could wipe out a good pages from the book without noticing the difference.

But if I’m reading even her thoughts, why d 3. This book takes place pretty much exclusively in the Barrani High Court.

What’s that all about? Maybe my issues are with the editor more than the author The politics was overwhelming and though Kaylin keeps telling us how uneducated she is, due to the fact she failed all her classes except the hands on stuff that she loved, I found her to be quiet knowledgeable at times.
