Life is like an onion.
– Shallow, plot driven, overly convoluted adventure fantasy.

This is possibly the worst attempt at a love story I’ve ever read. I have no idea what the author was trying to accomplish but taking characters from literally killing each other -> betrothed in less than a week is pretty remarkable, especially since it’s accomplished without any attempt at growth by either party.
Like Jhereg, I suspect that I would have enjoyed Yendi a lot more if I had read it as a freshman in high school. The narrator and setting is just edgy enough that an adolescent would think it cool, the characters without depth, and the plot needlessly complicated. I’m going to hold onto this book in case one of my children wants to read it when they’re older, but I’m out on this series.
