An enjoyable read… for most part.
It was entertaining. Taita returns to his brilliant, conniving, witty self in this one (for most parts, anyway). Just that, there is that idiotic bit about Inana - which would have been tolerable if it was limited to just one vision / dream. Unfortunately it isn't limited to that. Disappointing AND annoying but just barely tolerable.
The worst part was the entire Minoan adventure. Once the characters landed in Minoa, I lost all interest. The characters became intolerable. ALL OF THEM.
What had started off as an enjoyable read became an annoying chore towards the end of the book.
