Naamah's Blessing

Naamah's Blessing - Jacqueline Carey Perfect vacation reading: long yet undemanding. I enjoyed it but wasn't particularly engrossed; the fact that Moirin uses her reified destiny like a GPS removes a lot of narrative tension, and the Aztec and Inca analogues never came as alive for me as the Tartar or Pict analogues from previous books. I did quite like Temilotzin, though. I'd love to have heard more from him.

When I reached the end of the plot, I was a little nonplussed by the number of pages remaining, but the slow denouement ended up working surprisingly well for me. I feel like I've well and thoroughly said farewell to Terre d'Ange. Time to see what Carey can do next.
