The worlds she create are so intricate you start thinking this could be an actual place. By telling an ancient legend of an ancestor the stories remain alive and Tortall’s characters expand.

It just does not really read like a diary so the whole that is what it is annoyed me since I didn’t buy it. Pierce successfully weaves almost Noir police procedural with gritty crime and punishment in a fantasy setting. In what other ways is it similar to and different from ours?
