I have never read a book with so many sick characters in it. Everyone is either sick or poisoned or suffering a blood loss or madness or exhausted beyond reason, even editing in this books seems to be on its deathbed. The villains are the only ones with a good immune system. And the servants. And horses. And Lord Sangre. Whatever that makes him.
Otherwise a nicely twisted winter story.
Rating it 4 stars, without taking in consideration numerous editorial blunders.
