I Can't Even

Seriously, if you are looking for the crack cocaine of speculative sci-fi/fantasy, this is it. The author is the queen of tantalising her listener/reader with titbits of information before jerking away on another tangent, such that it's half an hour later when you realise the Very Important Question hadn't been answered. Devious. I CANNOT wait for book 3.

Robin Miles is incredible

The middle section of this book is below the quality of the first, yes, and it suffers pacing issues throughout. But the last third more than makes up for it. It's an emotional gutpunch, with tight plotting and fantastic characters.

And Robin Miles just brings everything to life perfectly. She's one of the first narrators where I've gone to seek out other books she's narrated, just so I can keep listening to her.

Slow but hard-hitting

I love this series! It's one of the great modern sci-fi books, in my opinion. It's not about action but the development of characters in a dystopian world. Very strong female characters.
