This review is from: Angelica (Hardcover)
Sharon Shinn has such tremendous talent and ability. Her prose is magnificent. Just a few sentences bring the world of Samaria alive - both its people and its land. Her books make me want to sing! Her characters are fascinating - incredibly human,but fasicinating in spite of their very humaness. Ms. Shinn rarely falls into the trap of relying on stereotypes to fill in the details of her main characters.
Unfortuately, Ms. Shinn cheated herself on the ending to this magnificent work. The end felt rushed and abrubt, as if Shinn was meeting a deadline, ran out of inspiration, or had a page limit.
Though Angelica can stand alone, for your own benefit read the rest of Ms. Shinn's Samaria series before picking up Angelica.
