Just up my 'rue' really.But......then you realise that the characters have never been filled out (I did not have a mental snapshot of anyone, not even of Tasha, who was given the most page-room to description) and the final unveiling was truly a meh moment. It's really only a 2.5* book but because of the setting it I'll up it to the 3*
