* Star (A waste of time!)
While this book is well written, it was not my favorite. There is a sense of black magic woven throughout the whole book. And the antagonist is erring into the category of a sadistic villain. The antagonist takes pleasure in lying and twisting words so that other characters in the book will be lead astray by her. She also takes pleasure in torturing prisoners. Even with other books that I did not like, I would always try to finish them. This one was getting too weird, so I just put it down. I would not recommend this book.
