A review by amyshy
The Traitor Baru Cormorant, by Seth Dickinson


So many friends have raved about this book, and while I enjoyed it for the most part, I got lost more than once. Lots names and regions to keep track of, characters who are known by 2 and 3 names/titles, I struggled to keep it all straight. Thank goodness for the annotated map. Also the end is just too much military. It's all war councils and battles that were a slog to read. It was cleverly plotted but I saw the twist coming. Also, I didn't really like ANY of the people in this book. While it was a compelling read, it wasn't really my jam.
