The Bards of Bone Plain by Patricia A. McKillip
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I don't think my brain was in the right place when I started this book. I had such a hard time getting into it, I was bored and it was putting me to sleep (literally, I'd fall asleep after only a few pages).
But picking it up again a few days ago, determined to finish, I realized it was actually a very good book. Once I got to the halfway point I was much more interested and felt more connected to it. It was still a bit abstract, I don't really understand what happened to Nairn in the tower, but I liked the writing and the characters (for the most part).
Recommended for fantasy readers if you are looking for some good high fantasy with some abstract ideas of magic.
