Snakewood by Adrian Selby
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Ok, I am a bit torn, first of all, Snakewood has a extremely cool idea for a fantasy world, and then wrap it in one of the most difficult, obtuse ways to tell your story, in another words..not good.
I read reviews for this before hand, so I knew that it jumped perspectives and viewpoints so IF you go into the book with that in mind, it takes a bit of the edge off, but if you DON'T, you will drop it quick. That is a shame because there is hints of cool all throughout and I am intrigued once you get past the author trying to be all "fancypants" with his storytelling.
If you like the grimdark fantasy and willing to suffer a little bit, check this out, the story pacing is all over the damn place and there is NOT a likeable character in the bunch, there is a very interesting concept behind the world and honestly me being a world building freak, my three stars are almost solely based on it.
So dear readers, I leave the choice up to you, take a chance or not.
