I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

Great fantasy novel - with a very engaging romance

Balanced on the Blade's Edge - Lindsay Buroker

I did like a few of her other novels, though they had a too slow slow burn...


Here, it had delicious tension and a very sweet love story. World-building was solid, story gripping enough.


It felt more like an epic fantasy than a steampunk novel, but I don't care, I like epic fantasy.


It reminded me a bit of "An Accidental Goddess"  - the long sleep, the powers, the set-up.

Since AAG was one of my favourite books, nothing wrong with that, since it is not a cheap rip-off, just a slight resemblance.


Off to the next installment!
