Thanks Librarything for a free book to read and review.
Uniquely told story. A lot like the phantom of the opera, but with a much more devilish approach. Afsar the Shahs eldest child becomes involved with a circus performer named Eirik whose face was disfigured. They become friends and then mutual killers. Eirik becomes her father assassin, and the story becomes deeply dark. Very nice world building, and characters were intensely interesting. However I thought the ending was rather abrupt, and it could have been a bit more fleshed. Overall entertainment is four stars.
