An epic adventure spanning the globe from colonial India, to Europe and North America. While I did appreciate the book for its descriptive settings and fast paced plot, I prefer my adventures more modern and intellectual. Too much gratuitous violence and graphic sex for me. I still recommend it for those who enjoy high octane adventures of revenge with brave men and damsels in distress. Out Sept. 3rd. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #seasonalreadingchallenge #netgalley

This was really slow for me and I felt like the author sacrificed the story for excessive description of the setting. I just couldn‘t get into this one. Maybe if I read some of the other books in the series I would like it better, but based on this book alone, I wasn‘t a fan.

Sunraven At least it has a fun cover? 😉 6mo
