OMG Bu kitabı tamamen sevdim !!! İTunes'daki audiobooks.com'dan indirmeyi dinledim. Philipa Ballantine bu muhteşem hikayede Fae'yi gerçekten ele geçirdi. Eğer peri masalları hayranı iseniz, bu harika bir kitap. Bununla birlikte, bu, 7 yıl yaşlı peri tanrıları ve diş perileri hikayeniz değil. Bu kesinlikle yetişkinlerin peri masalı.
Snake Agent is mostly urban fantasy, with a touch of cyberpunk if you think about the technology involved in the bioweb, which turned out not to be just background and world-building, but a serious part of the plot. It's notable because it relies more on Eastern mythology and culture than Western: however, as with Liz Williams' other book, Empire of Bones, it didn't feel all that different. A couple of other reviewers note their problems with Inari, and the lack of importance of female characters in the book. I have to say, I see where that's coming from. Inari spends most of her time running away and longing for someone else's protection; the other women are mostly dead or inconsequential, aside from two goddesses who do play important roles. Also, menstrual blood is a hellish, hellish thing in this world. Women's bodies are so icky, right? Anyway, nonetheless I found it quite fun, and I loved the badger-teakettle. I wish there'd been more with the demon hunter and the naive sergeant -- they felt very incidental. I'll be reading more of Liz Williams' books, I think -- unless the same problems just keep coming up again and again.
Like a lot of Manga-style comics, I found this confusing: a lot of characters look too much like each other, and don't always look enough like themselves, either. I might read more of these if I had easy access to them, but I won't be tracking them down through ILL or anything.
