Smiler’s Fair: the great moving carnival where any pleasure can be had, if you’re willing to pay the price. They say all paths cross at Smiler’s Fair. They say it’ll change your life. For five people, Smiler’s Fair will change everything.
The problem with this book is that there are much better fantasy books out there. The entire time I was reading this I couldn’t help but compare it to The Killing Moon which was much better in my opinion.
It also annoyed me that the towns and cities were constantly moving. Now I have to say I did find it interesting that towns were constantly on the move and that castles float on lakes so they are in constant movement. But it annoyed me that there was no explanation for this other than “thats how it has always been“.
I was also surprised at how violent this book was, the sexy times were really quite graphic too. Overall it was an okay book. Good enough that I would read the sequel but there are better fantasy books out there.
