I love this series but the goriness in this book is really too much and completely unnecessary. Why on earth must the heroine witness the victim of a crime stab out her own eyes with her knitting needles and this to be described in every gory detail to make yet another decision to stop the criminal which she has so tried unsuccessfully is beyond me.

for teenagers, LARPers ... at heart

This is basically the coming-of-age-story of a teenage girl. She has to leave her family and friends. She gets trained in an art completely new to her. Initally overwhelmed, she discovers she is actually very talented at it. She falls in love with her teacher, attracted to a man who mainly comes across as distant and arrogant, but extremely good at his job and quite attractive. She learns about sexual attraction and has pleasant and unpleasant encounters. She learns that the dangers of her world are actually very serious and out to get her, not just the fairytales she believed as a kid; and how she can put her talents towards making the world a better place. She has to face up to the conflicts of her childhood days and resolve them. Her horizon broadens as she moves to the big city and has to find her way in social circles that were alien to her before. She gains knowledge and courage and self-respect. And then all of this is put to the test in a big showdown to save her world.
It's just disguised as a fairy tale complete with magicians, enchanted woods, witches, beautiful princes and evil queens which is disguised as a fantasy novel.
It's a bit like the Outlander series really, but with more magic and a bit less sex.
If you enjoy escaping into such a fairy tale world, if you occasionally enjoy such teenage erotic fantasies, or if you are a LARPer who enjoys detailed and intricate descriptions of magical spells and healing rituals - or if you are all of this at once deep down in your heart, you'll like this book. If not, read something else.

Ich hab mir jetzt vier Stunden davon angehört und finde das Hörbuch einfach langweilig. Die Grundidee könnte spannend sein, aber der Autor verliert sich in Details, Erläuterungen fiktiver technischer Details, Alltagsthemen....gelesen wird das ganze auch mit einer überbetonung von m.E. nebensächlichen Dingen wie dämliche Akzente usw. Ich kann gar nicht einordnen ob das satirisch-parodistisch sein soll oder ernst gemeint oder wie. Die Geschichte hat kein Tempo und keinen Spannungsbogen und macht keine Lust zum weiter hören.
