    The smog in Mushtallah tasted of tar and ashes it tasted like the war I had to remind myself to breathe when I was reading Infidel. Kameron Hurley s Bel Dame series is simply amazing So many themes packed into each page action, honor, faith, regret, resolve, all woven into a fast moving plot, character exploration and innovative world building It feels real and harsh and heartbreaking When I finished late at night, I felt rather the same way I felt when I finished The Last Argument of Kin The smog in Mushtallah tasted of tar and ashes it tasted like the war I had to remind myself to breathe when I was reading Infidel.

    I come away from this novel with the same feeling I had from the first Oppressed.Of course, that s the point War, religious or otherwise, is hell Being good at it does nothing to improve your relations with others, and Nyx is a shining example of the honor bound disgraced warrior working to regain her good name and status as a Bel Dame elite.And yet, for all the fighting, the tight plotting, the hopes, the fears, and the twists of everything, what I really feel is the oppression of deep heart I come away from this novel with...

    The Good Just like last time, the setting is creepy and dark and wonderful The characters are awesome, headlined by the best heroine in fantasy fiction The ending is pretty good too.The Bad It s just a bit too slow, especially early on Friends character the protagonist is most like Nyx is still like Rachel, but sometimes drily humorous like Chandler She is angsty like Ross, bloody minded like Monica and out of her fucking mind like Phoebe In book one she was smooth with the ladies, much li The Good Just like last time, the setting is creepy and dark and wonderful The characters are awesome, headlined by the best heroine in fantasy fiction The ending is pretty good too.The Bad It s just a bit too slow, especially early on Friends character the protagonist is most like Nyx is still like Rachel, but sometimes drily humorous like Chan...

    5 StarsI am giving Infidel a full extra star and full marks because this is the second book in the trilogy and it does not suffer the normal mid cycle blues Hurley does a rare thing with this sequel In that she does not hold back, there are many major plot twists, series changers, and characters killed I love how this series is incredibly dark and dirty and filled to the brim with ...
