Very creative. I was able to immerse myself into the fictional time and place without difficulty. Author was able to make it relatable, but unique at the same time.
I enjoyed both the primary and secondary characters. I probably would have understood them more had I read the first book. So a bit more backstory would have been helpful.
Good use of imagery. Language appropriate to setting and characters. Good balance of showing and telling. "
The writing style was great, although I believe this is a sequel to something? Nevertheless, I didn't once feel left out of the action. I really like the handle the author has on court intrigue--its a favorite subgenre of mine. The blend and creation of the setting magic styles was really fun.
Idolatry (Reagalos Book 2)
After reading Idolatry by Rebecca Cohen it makes me wonder why either of these two books was published.
Around Rystal Lake there are four cities: Scura, Xenetra, Iconis, and Beher. The Reagulos family has ruled Scura for many generations. The current High Lord, Lornyc Emaus Reagalos has just escaped an attempted assassination plot from relatives Luka Erion and Liege Korin Erion. Escaping by the use of his magical powers, the book opens with Lornyc trying to cement the rule of his city of Scura as the newly appointed High Lord. The Reagulos power, fortune and magic comes from the certain orbs that are found in underground caves of the cities they rule. They travel through portals within the cities and other dimensions.
Lornyc is married to Methian Hadral, heir to the city of Xenetra, currently ruled by Methian's father, Bartemus Hadral. Unbeknownst to Lornyc, his grandfather had set up a cult, The Cerulion Cult, which stated that Lorync was "The One" and was to be worshipped as a god. On the crowning of Lornyc as "The One" - which happens in the in the city of Iconis, an orb is accidentally opened and a second Lornyc is released which creates an imbalance through the present dimension which is policed by the Valen Brethen.
It's up to Lornyc, his Valen guards Diam and Cupris, and Lornycs' lover, family and a circle of close friends to re-establish the order. Thus we spend a big portion of the book traveling through different dimensions - in which each character has a different role - until the balance is restored.
The book attempts to be narrated from the third person point of view, but the writer jumps from one character to the next, thus creating a universal point of view by default. The book ends up being confusing and hard to follow. It was a dreadful read: the characters are very superficial and not interesting. i did not identify with any one of them. The sex scenes are boring: Ms Cohen has no idea what two men do in bed. The plot is complicated and irrelevant. The book was torture. Being a sequel, the plot from the first book was poorly related, thus I had trouble understanding what any of the prior history was - and if it was relevant. The book does not stand alone well, and personally I am not inclined to bother reading Servitude - the first book in the series.
