Review on Court
on January 28, 2010
It has been a while since I sat down and read a book, and while I wouldn't put this one on my prized book shelf, it was worth the read.
Reccommmendations for: A large cast of characters, the steamen race, intriguing ideas, great imagination, good ending.
Against: The most interesting characters are often the minor ones, many of the intriguing plot-points aren't developed fully, some of the side-character-views seemed rather uneccessary to the plot as a whole.
There is a lot of potential for further development in this universe, and I will no doubt read Hunt's other books. This book may not be the best introduction to his world, but the bright side: this book does get better as you get into it, and it is one of those you need to read to the end to appreciate. So for other reviewers -- please don't review what you haven't read.
