I was really excited to read the second book of the Books of Bayern Series, I had just been struggling through the awful “In Courts of the Sun” and was desperate for something actually good. Since I had such a great experience with “The Goose Girl” I thought this would be a great reprieve from my book despair.
While it was a million times better than Courts of the Sun, it wasn’t as good as Goose Girl and I was a bit disappointed. I didn’t hate it though. I really enjoyed Enna‘s character in the first book and the princess, now Queen Ani was still delightful. I’m sure I’ll still finish the series hoping this was a hiccup, and the rest is great. The ending left it hanging and I need some resolution.
Granted, the part where I really started struggling was when she was in love with what’s his bucket “for a week” and they had just immediately fallen in love and she had turned her back on her friends… it was weird and I was upset. I don’t believe in love at first sight and it tends to cloud everything else out. However, I felt much better after realizing that he had the people speaking gift that can make people make decisions and do things against their will.
