The Ill-Made Mute (The Bitterbynde)

The Ill-Made Mute (The Bitterbynde) - Cecilia Dart-Thornton Very nice, with an original main protagonist and very interesting characters. The story is compelling, the world-building solid and there are many delightful details of folklore and story-telling. Epic fantasy at its purest, with quests, treasures and all. Unfortunately, the pace is a bit slow -particularly and the beginning, when the reader absorbs a lot of information along with the amnesiac protagonist- and too much care in descriptions (and sometimes endless lists of objects and foods, or long songs) makes for a difficult reading at times, but on to the next book!
