Review

 

Night Spinner was such a pleasant surprise.  It intrigued me from the beginning and got better and better as the book went on. The world-building was wonderful, there were rich magic and religions that were very well explained.  

Enebish was a great character.  Often times when the story is told from a main character point of view, it can get annoying.  Enebish was rightfully subdued at the beginning of the book, but it was wonderful to see her grow throughout the book.  The story was full of twists and turns and I have to admit that while one I figured out early on, there were quite a few others that took me by surprise.  This book was fast-paced, especially in the second half. Overall, the plot was extremely interesting and easily kept my attention from beginning to end.  

I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next book in this series.
