Loved it. Someone had complained about the female narrator. I have none.
Beautiful peace of fantasy in a historical setting!
The language is rich and descriptive.
It was a bit confusing to keep track of who was on who’s side, but after a couple of listens, it became clear.
Takeo’s chapter’s were really cool, especially during the training montages. His conflict in loyalties is interesting. The affect it has on his psyche is also explored in a way that truly makes him sympathetic.
Kaede’s chapters were wonderful because one can see the way that she begins to take control of her own life.
My only complaints was that the narrators were slow, especially the one that did Kaede’s chapters.
It was frustrating at times and I resolved to listen to it at 1.25X speed.
That said, this book was really interesting.
The story is good but has slowed down considerably. The woman narrator reads so slowly it’s almost unbearable... if she was the only narrator, id have given up already.
