It and I m looking forward to continuing on with the series someday I Loved This Book loved this book s such an amazing story with so much information and so many characters it s sometimes hard to catch them all but the in the end it is what makes it so rich and overwhelming I loved the gifts and the assion and the ending was very much worth the invested time Let me reface my opinion with another opinion by saying that I think Somerville is a fantastic writer I LOVED the Pindone Files and Remastering Jerna was beautiful However I had major Schilder's Struggle for the Unity of the Church problems with this book Well one majorroblem really her characters are too virtuous They re so sweet and amazing that they give me the moral euivalent of a toothache One or two A (kinda) Country Christmas paragons I could deal with but all of the good guys in this book are such freakinginnacles of erfection that I almost wanted to side with the bad guys but they too were so clumsily maligned that they ended up being laughable and while I can side with evil I cannot side with stupid So that leaves my loyalties orphaned which is never a comfortable thing Arman especially I feel had the capacity to be a bit of a lovable bastard but this is never capitalized on And what s up with the weird animal names I know it s meant to lend the world building some depth but Jombeker Really Call it a fucking goat or horse or whatever it is so that I spend less time grinding my teeth in frustration trying icture it and time actually enjoying the book This was beautiful A real slow burn romance which I love and the world building was amazing very well thought out It was a huge book though I ll need a bit of a break before moving onto the next one The best word I can think of to describe Kei s Gift is epic in the very classical sense of the word This is a broad On and a desire to bring its religion and its laws to the whole world Twenty years ago it conuered south Darshian now it has greedy eyes on the north The war brings Kei a gentle fun loving healer from an isolated village into collision with Arman an embittered honourable general. ,
