This was my first introduction into the GoT world. I‘ve never seen the series or read the books but really wanted to check out the graphic novels to dive into the universe. This book did an awesome job of setting up the world and introducing the start of the story line that will become GoT. Definitely a great starting point for anyone new to the world or for anyone that wants the backstory!

While obviously a first novel, this is the book #GRRM should read! It shows historical “realities” without glorifying rape and torture. Finally, a book about men and women in power, their political intrigue, and the consequences of personal vendettas on a nation where women can and will use their limited power for themselves and their families. 4/5 stars, read if you like #GoT, but demand less rape. Set in Ancient Rome with gods granted magic.

Leftcoastzen Awww 🥰 so beautiful! 🐶 5mo
iread2much Also like stupid GRRM, the author leaves off on a cliff hanger and hasn‘t even started on the second book. 😡 but it ends well, even if the shifting narratives where very irritating and I really wanted to focus on Latona, it is a great real politic novel; set in a well imagined world, with limited magic that doesn‘t make everything easier. 5mo
iread2much @Leftcoastzen thank you! 5mo

Leftcoastzen Sounds like an interesting read. 5mo
iread2much And this book is all about women using their power and trying to navigate the gifts from the gods. The main character is constantly told to control her power, is feared for her power, abused for her power, and must decide how and if to use it. So amazing it‘ll find that story finally written. I wish this book got as much coverage as GoT 5mo
iread2much @Leftcoastzen it was! The first few chapters are a slog, but they get better as the book progresses. I really enjoyed it and I hope to see what you think if you read it 😄 5mo

Goodness gracious Hello!! I have been MIA for MONTHS! All apologies for that. My Litsy app went down and I couldn‘t fix it. I‘ll try and remember to post here now it‘s back up and running! 🌻 How are you all!? What are you reading? I am currently rereading GoT because I was craving some Westeros after discussing it all weekend with my friend. Now I‘ve actually started though I‘m craving Pratchett again(as I was prior) so I might swap. #books #grrm
