Things get really bogged down Woolfhound I enjoyed "The Bloodline Feud," the first omnibus volume in this series, so I was eager to dive into this but really, it's pretty disappointing. Things get bogged down and Stross throws a numbing array of plot twists and characters at the reader, mostly leaving me thinking, "Wait what?" I could have made it through that except this book has no ending. It just stops at a crucial moment. I get that this is a series, but individual books in a series do need to be actual stories of their own. This isn't, and I was cursing Stross when I finished. I was, however, hooked enough to go on to the next book.If you like the. slow to start, picked up at the end For me, this book was difficult to get into. I started it, read a handful of pages, then set it aside again. I went in fits and starts like this for probably two weeks. The reason for the slow start, I think, is because the main character, Miriam (we met her in the previous volumes/omnibus of the series), is stuck in a primitive world where she is waited upon at a castle, where she occasionally attends functions with other nobility and/or the royal family, where she chafes at being kept restrained, and/or where she is actually imprisoned. She just doesn't DO anything for a big chunk of the first part of the book
