My Review of Seasons of Albadone

5 stars

It's a relatively short book, coming in at just under 200 pages, but packed into it is an elaborate setting, a number of interesting characters, and a lot of intrigue. I had been reading a lot of books in the 500–700-page range, so a quick, but great read like this was a welcome reprieve.

This book was a ton of fun to read. I'm looking forward to checking out the second book in The Eighth Chant series, A Contract in Sol Forne. It's over double the size of Seasons of Albadone, so it will be interesting to see what the authors can do with the expanded page count.
