I found this rather okay, the world which is heavily inspired by Ancient Greece was definitely interested, intricate and well developed.
The story is about a slave, who runs away. But after he runs away, almost all my interest had waned in him. Nothing wrong, just that I really didn’t like how the story went. It was just travelling, and more travelling. And eventually, I found myself bored.
And when that happens, it became a great chore to read it. There just wasn’t much of anything really drawing me into this story at all, apart form the way that Kamet’s thought about his slavery, not just that and also some instances of his past.
And the way that enslaved people are trusted more than those who aren’t. It makes sense, and most of it is filled with difficult political intrigue. Also, managing to characterize a person that had died. I really did like this book on some level, except that nothing much happens in this book. That is why I was bored and really I couldn’t enjoy it.
So, overall this book does have interesting worldbuilding but just a rather lackluster plot.
