I enjoyed this a great deal! It was a fast, entertaining story that had me laughing, gasping, and "d'awww-ing" throughout. I think the narrative would have benefited from more interactions between Rina and her companions, as at times she felt a little flat. Having her engage more with Alem, Tosh, Braisely, and Marizan would have rounded out her character a bit more. However, I loved the supporting cast! Braisley and Tosh, especially were delightful. I would have happily read an entire book about Tosh's adventures.
My one niggling complaint is that pretty much every female character we meet has her breasts described in great detail, even when the POV is a heterosexual woman. In my experience as a woman, most of us do not think about their own breasts or the breasts of other women in such...er, explicit detail.
As others have said, there is a lot of sex and violence in this book; it is most definitely NOT YA. Think the Game of Thrones TV show. If you enjoy that, you'll enjoy this. :)
The writing was fluid and easy to absorb, which added to the book's readability. Overall, I highly recommend it to anyone looking for adventure!
The training and fight scenes were well written with out a lot of excess gore but enough touches of realism that show that Victor Gischler has studied what he's writing about very well.
The sexual tension is minor and predictable, almost like it was a thrown in afterthought to lead into future tensions for the second and third books.
Well worth buying.
Very well written, and I would read this again AND recommend it. I will have to look for other books by this same author, and I would love to see another book written in the Ink Mages universe - perhaps in the past during the war? That would be very interesting and could span more than one novel
