I love Khristine Hvam. I listened to this on audio book and immediately recognized the voice but couldn't quite place it, then quickly made the connection to Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Khristine Hvam has such talent as a reader.
As for this book, it was good. The characters were interesting and the story was good, however I just didn't connect with this book as much as I'd hoped I would. I liked Blanche and Jenny, I liked the time period. I loved the way Blanche developed, but something just didn't quite work for me.
