This dragged at times into religious discourse, though was painted as internal philosophising. Legit, as I’m sure it reflects much of the author’s own journey.

The assassin’s story is far from thrilling or suspenseful, and the really engaging material takes place during the time travel assignment. But this doesn’t last long.

I was expecting more of the suspense and drama offered in Rice’s previous repertoire, but it seems she lost her edge—or at least was not encouraged to let it show—with these religiously themed works. Shame.

Overall, a quick read and highly informative, if not rivetingly entertaining.
