Shiang by C. F. Iggulden

I have to say that having enjoyed the first book so much, and having anticipated this second book with great excitement, I was a little disappointed! It started with great promise, but in my personal and very humble opinion, became repetitive, and…dare I say it…in parts, even boring! The ending saved my rating a little, because there is no doubt that it is very visual for anyone with imagination and has great cinematic appeal. On the whole however, ‘Shiang,’ for me, was disappointing.
