This is one of those books that look really intriguing to the point where you actually buy it.
So yeah, I requested this for Christmas and I was very happy when I got it. It has a great cover, an interesting blurb and is written by master storyteller Kate Orman. And it features Tigers.
The setting, the world of Hitchemus, is done really well. I can imagine the metropolises and the almost African plains. The secondary characters are pretty good also.
The tigers are an example of an alien species done very well. They have emotions, motives, ambitions. They have a reason for what they are doing.
The recurring motif is music. As a musician, I think this theme is expertly done.
My main problem with this novel is the pacing and padding. In some places, it really drags to the point where a chapter takes days. As the recurring motif is music, we get a massive chapter called Chapter nine ten eleven twelve which is a nightmare to get through. Also, the ending, when it happened, is very rushed.
It's a good novel, get it if it interests you. It has flaws, but I like it.
8/10
