Hard to describe this one, because I came out confused. Linguistically, it was beautiful, with a rich context both historical and mythological and a captivating, almost mournful type of writing that glues you to the page. There’s something just over my head about everything though, a fractured, almost disconnected feeling to my read. I can’t justify paying RRP for the next volume but would like to think, if it comes down, I’d get it, if only to see what happens next and clarify a few things in my own head.
