An engrossing read

By Lyn Thorne-Alder, author of Side Quest

Sep 7, 2012: I read this series of stories in one sitting, unwilling to step away from the screen until I had finished.

Although the world of Kherishdar sometimes makes me uncomfortable, I attribute that to the depth of worldbuilding and Hogarth’s ability to portray the alien so very clearly.

Unlike other reviewers, I didn’t feel that the story suffered from the multiple narrators; despite the different viewpoints, this is a story about Shame, and we see him through the entire story. Indeed, I enjoyed the Admonishments more than the Aphorisms.

Well worth a read, if you are willing to be made a little bit uncomfortable on the way.
