    Sigh. I’ve been disappointed two days in a row now. πŸ™ This one also was on my wish list.

    I DNF’d this. Good to see I’m not the only one who found very little actually happening beyond the stylized prose–I sometimes worry I’m the only one who doesn’t “get” a book.

    And then they say a book cover isn’t important. I was scanning the books on this site and this one just stood out. It’s so important to have a cover that represents the quality of the book. Makes me instantly want to pick it up. Looks really cool.
