Naamah's Curse (Kushiel's Legacy #8)
by Jacqueline Carey
Far from the land of her birth, Moirin sets out across Tatar territory to find Bao, the proud and virile Ch'in fighter who holds the missing half of her diadh-anam, the divine soul-spark of her mother's people. After a long ordeal, she not only succeeds, but surrenders to a passion the likes of which she's never known. But the lovers' happiness is short lived, for Bao is entangled in a complication that soon leads to their betrayal.
I really really did not like the first half of this book. I did not like reading about Moirin telling her "sins" and having them skewed by the priest character in such a way that all that she had accomplished in her life were evil deeds and sins. It made me upset and uncomfortable to read. The redeeming factor to the book was the last quarter of the book, where the pace and the storyline pick up and Bao is once again around.
Rating: 2/5 Stars
