This was a re-read.
I remember being amazed the first time I read this. The way the stories all wove together, the fear of the Shrike. I thought it was genius! All of which, for the most part, remains true.
However, I had overlooked the gore and the religious ‘discussions’ – if that’s what we want to call them. I must have, cuz here they are – front and center. As a religious person, a Christian, I got a creepy, uneasy feeling anticipating the overall arc of the story so I went on line, checked and yep- I will not be continuing with the series.
This book and this series is not for me.
Onto the next book on my TBR…
