 Sometimes you dnf a book after a rocky start, but its plot and characters linger in your mind for longer than expected, and you start to wonder, what did I miss? what am I missing? Luckily, my will power is rather weak. And I was missing a lot!
This book explores the Arthurian mythos and its magic in a surprisingly realistic way, exploring themes that are unfortunately overlooked in most contemporary set fantasy related stories.
I loved the conversations, the characters and specially the relationships they built, rebuilt, and improved. I really enjoyed the magic system, the conversations related to it, how it worked, and the different connections with ancestors; it is also refreshing to see some not Eurocentric magic for once.
I can't wait to read more from this series.
