Not My Cup of Tea

Corr Syl the Warrior by Garry Rogers is the first book in the Corr Syl series. I tried, I really tried to like this book. I received a free review copy from the publisher through NetGalley. Unfortunately, the version I received had so many sentence/spelling errors that the book was rather frustrating to read. Every few pages sentences would be mixed out of order and you’d have to quit reading a few words and try to ‘puzzle match’ the sentences together.

If that was not enough, I found the story to be incredibly difficult to follow. The positives about this book was its unique idea, the difficulty was in the execution which very clearly missed the mark. I could not even finish this book and that’s a rarity for me in book reviews. From what I did read I felt the characters lacked development and the story gave a near ‘godlike’ status to the Tsaeb. I love fantasy, I love the idea of animals being intelligent, I just did not care for the way this book/story presented that. As a result I am giving this book 2/5 stars for a story concept that never quite delivered.
