I couldn't get into this one. I wish I could have, as it was beautifully written, full of lovely descriptions that provided the reader with a strong sense of the setting and characters. I wouldn't warn others off of this for the above reasons, it just wasn't a story that I found to be gripping. I believe this story failed, for me, because if the extended set-up and background. I wanted more tension, more build-up, etc. in the end, I just felt kind of ... meh... about it. Just my own opinion, and probably just my state of mind at the moment.
