One of the worst books I've read in a really long time.

A Shiver of Light - Laurell K. Hamilton

I was debating between a half star and 1 star.. but I did like several scenes - and I did read these rather voraciously years ago.

 

But sweet jumpin jesus. Is she going to go down the Anne Rice road and forgo all editing, like forever? Because this was in serious need of the red pen. Pages and pages devoted to breast feeding, leaking, and what people are wearing. It was really odd. When it was devoted to Taranis or Aunt Andais, the writing was relatively smoother and flowed a helluva lot better. When it wasn't focused on that, it was scattered, overly detailed, and monotonous. I made myself finish because I requested it for review.. but trust me, I was punished for that as well. I'm not ever going to recover the time I spent slogging through this book. :
