The Destroyer Goddess: Part Two of In Fire Forged

Laura Resnick. Satisfying sword and sorcery read, but more blah, blah, blah on the jacket and author’s note about how this book just couldn’t, possibly, be fit into one volume. Granted, the pacing is no Robert Jordan, but come on. “[T]he only other alternative was to eliminate so many pages that the remaining story wouldn’t have made any sense.” Puh‐leeze, “the only other alternative” proves the editing wasn’t so hot, so I don’t want to hear it.
