1. This is part of a massively interwoven group of books. There are tons of characters from all the books and even though I read them relatively recently (all within the last 3 months) I haven't committed all of the characters to memory. The author does virtually nothing to help people out with this. She can have someone who has a relatively minor character 20 books ago and expects you to pretty much remember everything about that character who suddenly reappears 20 books later. I felt constantly confused in this book and many characters were brought back that I couldn't remember much about. It wouldn't take much for the author to just give a bit more orientation in each book to who people are.
2. Perhaps because of the above, I couldn't figure out the Kay character and who she was and why she had her issues. I just couldn't get into caring about her at all.
3. Several other viewers pointed out that this is another series where, yet again, a female character is being abused by all the men in her life. That is a valid criticism. For me, the big issue is that it seems repetitious of the High Demon series. I can see doing this in one series but I really, really, really don't want to have 6 more books that are more of the same. I also don't want a female character who just takes it. This main character has immense power and clearly doesn't have to put up with it. I will be extremely disappointed if she continues to do so in the next book.
Again, overall I love the series (all of them) and enjoyed this book particularly when it focused on the main character. When the book dealt with Ashe (a character that I loved in his series) it fell off mostly because it brought back many characters that I couldn't remember details about and I couldn't get into Kay.
I found that much of the first part of the book was extremely difficult to understand due to lack of enough of a back story as to who Breanne was and why she really was in Lissa's palace. Even if that wasn't confusing enough, the horrible way she was treated by just about every man she had to come into contact on a daily basis was appalling. Between Gavin, Teeg, and Kal they should all have been shot into the nearest white dwarf star or wormhole which would have ended her torment.
Reah was even scared to be around her which considering how Reah had been treated in the last section of this series, I found confusing. She should have understood better than anyone else what Breanne was going thru.
Kay and her issues....not getting it.
On subtledemon.com there's a 'glossary' of characters but it's not up to date so some sort of story synopsis at the beginning may have helped out with my issues with the book. With all the mates and characters in the book, a score card for who deals regularly with who would be helpful.
I finished it and will more than likely read the rest of them but perhaps not with the same enthusiasm as I read the rest of Connie's books.
Blood destiny series Blood Wager (Blood Destiny #1); Legend of the Ir'Indicti seriesBumble (Legend of the Ir'Indicti #1), and then read High Demon series Demon Lost (High Demon #1) (High Demon Series).
This first book of the next series installment brings the bulk of our characters, those we love and hate, all together for the God Wars series. It is definitely an emotional roller coaster with the two new characters.
I am already ready for June when the next installment comes out. Great work Connie!
As Penny and others have said, read the other series first otherwise it is easy to get lost on why the characters are behaving in certain ways.
Once you catch up, this book is going to pull you along fast. I am already on my third re-read.
Enjoy once you have a chance to discover Connie's world!
(vague spoilers) There is a happy ending to the book but its for a character you barelly know and involves making up with a character that is not even in the book until that point. The main character fixes some vague problem at the end that the reader never knew about and is never explained.
In short if you have not read the authors earlier books, then dont read this one. This is not a new series. This is an author adding a character to the middle of a well established storyline.
