What Happens in Books

Love to read and talk books

The Shadow and the Star - Laura Kinsale I'm not sure how I feel about this book, it's like there was this good emotional story with Samuel and Leda that you couldn't stop reading, and then there was the Japanese blot that I was totally uninterested in and just flipped through!

There were some parts that were really dark, and then there were the parts with the Ashlands that were a relief and I didn't like how they were left behind and not mentioned again.

I just felt that the stuff with the sword at the end was totally unnecessary and lots of things were left unsaid and unexplained which would have made a better ending if they were addressed.

I'm really not sure how I feel about this book which makes it very hard to write this review.
