I mostly liked this book, but it was hard to follow the story at times, or feel what was at stake due to the style of storytelling and lack of compelling stakes. There are different magic systems at work here, but it took awhile for me to work out how they worked because the story is told in two different timelines, the present, and a past timeline that explains how the characters eventually ended up in their current predicament. I felt like this form of storytelling, while an interesting exercise, didn't lend itself well to conveying what is currently at stake in the story, or why I should care about the characters. Because of those reasons, it took me a bit longer to read this book because I found it so hard to get into. It requires full concentration, and for more casual readers it might be a bit hard to follow. That being said, its not a bad book, and Martha Wells is definitely a powerhouse when it comes to creating new and interesting situations and characters. This is an action packed story, but without establishing empathy for all of the characters, some of the action falls flat.… (mais)

A much more layered and involved book in this series. The earlier novellas felt more straightforward, YA style romps. Loved this, loved the characters and world that Wells is so great at creating.

I loved this book and the world that it is set in. The writer manages to create a world with no humans, yet doesn't fall back on the cats/mice/birds/dragons/fairies are the dominate species. She created something entirely new yet entirely relatable.

I hope this series continues--it has been added to my auto-buy list. Lovely
