Naamah’s Curse – Jaqueline Carey

This is a sequel to Naamah’s Kiss – a book that follows some generations after the Kushiel’s series by Carey.

There was some sort of resonance between this book and the Traitors’ Gate – there’s an obvious link with the mountains and overall Asia-inspired location, but there’s something similar about the protagonists.

Anyhow, this follows the somewhat predictable of Carey’s Kushiel books of two climax story lines ( 😉 ) – a major initial challenge, followed by a regroup and need to go fight an unexpected larger battle/conflict.  The first conflict here was a bit less stellar than usual – having to scrub floors in the temple with short hair doesn’t quite match Phedre’s time in the dark seraglio.  The final show-down is more exciting, but still does not rank with the best of Phedre.
