So, this book was huge. So long that I had to stop half way through for a break. I really enjoyed the first half of the novel, but to move the characters along the author employed a few of my pet hate tropes, so I did get a little meh about continuing.
There are quite a few scenes of rape in the 2nd half of the book and the overall treatment of Amber as a character is pretty shabby. I guess this treatment and her willingness to blindly carry on was frustrating for me as a reader. I wanted her to finally be done with some of the characters, to move on. It became annoying and grated.
For the most part I can say this was enjoyable and well worth a look if you're into long, scifi romance with a lizardy twist.
