Allmänna fakta



Found: Fantasy blue girl;gods in sky i Name that Book (mars 2022)


I enjoyed this deconstruction of the typical hero’s story. There are more colors painted on this canvas than what you usually see. This is one of the few plot-driven stories that I have enjoyed.

First, it’s dark and complicated with the paradox of love and hate. Everything is messy and complex, the cast of characters included. Do the ends justify the means? When we idolize people what parts do we fail to see? How can one-sided thinking create huge blind spots?

The story begins slowly with Lazlo’s childhood and a haughty prince, but it’s worth holding onto until you can get to the meat of the story. I was surprised this wasn’t an Adult Fantasy with some of its implications and sexual content. Oh, and Minya? As my father would say, “That one’s a pistol.”

Overall, this was something different for me, and I had a great reading experience. It was DREAMY.

I've really enjoyed other books by Taylor, and the story line of this series is really interesting, but what spoils it for me are some of the overwrought and overly-long descriptive passages. We did this book as a read-aloud with our 15 yr old and they also rolled their eyes at the florid descriptions of passion.

Great world-building though! And m invested enough to move on to book 2!

A really enjoyable second volume on this "duology".

Really good world building by Ms Taylor. I was quite invested in the story of Lazlo Strange, Sarai and the others.
