Book review – The Weeping Empress by Sadie S Forsythe
Chigo Aglaeca wakes up from her cosy life with her husband and daughter to find herself in another time and place and in mortal danger.
Muhjah and Senka help her escape after she has killed some of the guards trying to kill her.
They go off on an adventure which involves lots of killing.
She is proclaimed to be ‘the Arm of the Goddess’ that the people have waited for.
I was expecting to really love this book but unfortunately it disappointed. It took a long time to read because it didn’t grip me. I didn’t hate it, I did in fact like it, the character’s were quite good but did not illicit much empathy from me. The plot idea was good but the execution of it could have been better, I found it to be too slow, boring and repetitive in places.
There are also recurring spelling errors which would have been picked up by good proof-reading.
I did like this book and others may like it more than I did.
