Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Sunday, November 19, 2023
I got this softcover at local independent bookstore Balin Books, attracted by the handsome cover-art. It's a fantasy in which the god known as the Raven, who has watched over the kingdom of Iraden for centuries, seems to be losing his power. He's supposed to be given blood sacrifices to sustain his power, so what's going wrong?

There's a lot of world-building here, and lots of stealth, conspiracy, and slow-growing plans - oh, and betrayal - and somehow I wasn't drawn in enough to be concerned over the fate of the gods or the people. Perhaps not the right mood? Ah, well, there are so many books! If someone finds this one and writes a rave review, maybe I'll try it again someday.

[There's a TV Tropes page on the novel, with some interesting tidbits.]
