Despite all the praise, I did have some reservations. Namely, I felt that Bennett got just a little carried away with his world at the expense of the story so that there are plot and logic holes that really should have edited better. Anyway, I'm definitely looking forward to City of Blades.
reviewed last year. While I enjoyed this book, I don't think I liked it quite as much as the first one. The big reason for this may be that the duology is really one big book split into two so it really deserves to be read in its entirety. The Lady pretty much picks up right where The Leopard left off and it was a little hard to get back into it after a separation of several months. Someday when I re-read I'll be sure to read both back-to-back.
