Firstly, how gorgeous is that cover?
That was the trouble with stolen memories, you could never trust them once they were yours.
Oh this book! The synopsis on Goodreads compares to Joe Abercrombie, and I totally get it. Sarilla has Glokta’s dedication and ruthlessness – I’d even say Ninefingers self-destruction. I’d definitely throw this book under grimdark, and I am here for it.
Sarilla is a memoria – identified by their white hair and black hands, memoria can see and steal peoples memories through touch. Falon is missing six months of his memories and is hoping that he can get these back by using Sarilla.
This book isn’t the longest, so I really am not going to say too much about it – as it would be so easy to spoil. But I thoroughly enjoyed it, even when I wasn’t – which makes no sense I know, but this really is a book about flawed characters making flawed decisions. I cannot wait to read the conclusion in the next book – already that small teaser at the back has me completely tantalised.
Thank you to Rachel for sending me a copy a free, this review is completely my own view.
