It starts well. I haven’t read the series, but I got into the story and the setting easily. The various elements of fantasy draw you into the world of Sigrud and Shara. The entire story felt like an imagery of the universe itself. Everything about the world we live in could be explained this way. As you get closer to the end, you realize it is not just about revenge or Shara or Sigrud. It is about trying to understand.

As such, there is a bit of a lopsided view as plain as day. That too is revealing of something, but not in the way literature expects. That is why the three stars (Out of Five).

Loved the prose.
