Such a disappointment. I wanted to like this book. I like Groff‘s use of language, but this book was terrible. I felt like the author couldn‘t decide if she wanted this to be historical fiction or outright fantasy. It was so unbelievable and historically inaccurate that it was ludicrous. I don‘t want to post spoilers, but about 2/3 of the way through the book the story becomes ridiculous. I couldn‘t suspend disbelief enough to finish this.
