  1. Thanks for the review and for the link to the AWW challenge page.As I posted on your AWW Goodreads page: Your response to this book really interests me as I have felt the same about some of my reading over the last six months since I decided to make reading books by Australian women a priority. Not only have I delved into genres I wouldn't normally read, but also I've kept going with books I might otherwise have put down. This has happened with Kalinda Ashton's Danger Game (litererary/drama), Heather Rose's The Butterfly Man (literary/crime – loved it!), Gail Jones' Dreams of Speaking (literary/fictional memoir/faction – extraordinary) and Leah Giarratano's Black Ice (crime). All, once I got into them, were very good reads, but I might not have gone beyond the first couple of pages normally.I haven't heard of Trudi Canavan before. Great to know there are so many talented Australian women writing out there.Thanks for your review.

  2. When You said you hadn't heard of Trudi, it brought home the necessity of the AWW challenge. She's sold over a million copies just recently, yet outside of certain circles she's almost unknown

  3. I loved Trudi's earlier books and I'm really looking forward to reading this (oh time, where are you…) It's big enough that it just never made it up the priority list for reading for me. Hopefully I'll get to it in the next few months (study prevents me going to read it kind of immediately).

    1. I find that if its a good book though, the page count doesn’t matter. I read Brin’s Existence and Rowena Cory Daniells’ Besieged one after the other and they are both around the 550 mark, Existence took me weeks to read, Besieged 2 days.
