Devices and Desires by K.J. Parker
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Gasp, I wanted to punch almost all of them in the face. They were conniving, annoying, too naive, and too ruthless, too much to one extreme. The one character that's more balanced than the others shines, go figure he was one of the noblest bound by duty. Maybe that gets better as the trilogy progresses?
The book just ends. I know it's a trilogy and a certain amount of cliffhanging is in order. The second book will probably resolve the same way, meaning it'll end for a time while creating tension and plot for the next portion of the story.
Overall, I don't have to love the characters or the way something is plotted to like the story. That being said, I liked the story and plan to read the next book soon while this story is still fresh.
