Throne of the Crescent Moon (The Crescent Moon Kingdoms, #1)

Throne of the Crescent Moon  - Saladin Ahmed My full review can be found at SFF Book Review.The short version is: I liked the book, although it didn't live up to its hype for me. I loved the characters and would have liked more focus on the "original" three - Adoulla, Raseed, an Zamia. It really bothered me that mid-book, two more view point characters were introduced. They slowed down the plot and took away "screen time" from Zamia whose character development suffered in turn.Qualms aside, this was a fun adventure with a cool setting that I recommend for a quick read in between chunky epic fantasies.7/10
