Doing this as an audiobook while I work some overnight shifts is just not a good idea. This book requires that I pay a bit more attention to it and also because so far nothing has happened. There has been some nice character development, albeit uneven at times, and I like that the author is taking her time, but by this point in War and Peace a major battle had already happened and their was a drunken bear scene.

The scene with the rain ships was nice.

I wish the author was a little better at setting the place where events are happening. Most of the time I get a vague impression of what the surroundings are, but most of the time I feel a little lost. Maybe that’s only because of the writing style and that a lot is taken for granted, but still.

At least the characters are good and fun. Always something interesting.
