    De verdad que ha ganado estos 2 premios?

    Una novela mala. Hipermegavalorada sin razón.
    No tiene nada.

    Yo a mitad del libro, he puesto el piloto automático y solo leia pensando en otras cosas ajenas al libro. Con eso digo todo.

    唉呀呀, 有追是對的~

    雖然只能從大家口中聽到凱里薩的名字, 但整個氛圍不變啊, 看得輕鬆又愉快. 是說, 這套書跟本就是打著奇幻名號的愛情故事咩 XD

    Astounding! I did not read the first book in the series as I was told this one would stand on its own, and so it was. A powerful story about an unlikely heroine: a once-crazy, middle-aged dowager queen that only wants to have a little room for herself and be treated like a human being from her peers. Of course things go downhill and Ista finds herself in the middle of a dangerous struggle between warring nations, gods, demons, a heroic knight and his stubborn and desperate wife. All is well crafted in this book: the character are lovable, Ista in particular with her regrets for the past, and her subtle, slightly cynical humour; the world-building is simple but effective; and the plot as well is one that fantasy veterans will recognize in its outline, but one that complements, rather than stunt or go at odds with, the character growth.

    王城闇影中看凱薩里從頭到尾不是背痛就是肚子痛, 明明就是一副快死的樣子卻還要解決一堆問題真的有夠有趣的, 反觀靈魂護衛一開始是看伊斯塔太后無病呻吟, 再來看"太后"跟兩個男人搞曖昧, 然後有點過多的神學/惡魔解釋, 不是很有趣

    *** This comment contains spoilers! ***

    這本超好看!!!
    我超喜歡的~
    又讓我猶豫是不是要改掉不打五顆星的習慣....orz
    但是一想到要從頭開始更改其他本的評價於是又放棄了
    總之在評論裡面註明很愛就好了

    相對於五神一的前半是宮廷鬥爭奇幻部分直到中後部才出來
    這本很快就開始啦~~
    主角是第一集的太后
    (雖然叫太后總覺得會很老但其實人家才40幾歲)
    硬要想也是可以想成個熟女大美人
    而這集對男主角的形容也很讚
    可以滿足男的帥女的正的幻想?
    (反正就在幻想的時候會把長相自動調到30幾歲這樣)

    伊斯塔因為第一集主角凱薩里解救了王室的原因 ...(continue)

    (反正就在幻想的時候會把長相自動調到30幾歲這樣)

    伊斯塔因為第一集主角凱薩里解救了王室的原因
    也終於從長年的詛咒解脫
    但還是抱著對因自己而死的某人的愧疚和對諸神救不了兒子的憤怒
    受困於悲哀痛苦的生活之中

    於是她終於找到機會逃避現在的生活奔向自由的旅行
    本來以為只是可以短暫的忘卻一下現實
    但卻因為遭遇敵國的攻擊和事隔多年又再出現的預知夢和第二視覺
    意外的從小小的朝聖之旅演變成替諸神解決問題的冒險

    這集的諸神比第一集出現的還要多
    三不五時就會在伊斯塔的夢裡和她對話
    大概是因為伊斯塔對諸神充滿怨恨並不尊敬
    所以在對話上就顯得很有人性也很有趣XD
    而這集大概也是因為由女性作為主角
    所以在感情戲的描寫也變得比較多而且纖細
    從伊斯塔被擄走然後被帥氣的將軍救回去
    然後進入神明指示的性別倒錯睡美人救援
    發現事情的真相再深入的發現後面的陰謀
    最後解決這整團亂順便跟諸神做個了斷再順手抱得美人歸(?)
    之中雖然有緊張或難過的部分
    但也穿插了很多有趣的對話和角色
    從人到神明 各配角們的個性描寫都很生動
    就連惡魔們感覺也變得比較不恐怖
    而是一種會跟人對話可以控制的存在

    這本看完真的覺得有種滿足感
    除了可以看奇幻 冒險 愛情戲之外
    也可以看到像是十二國記那種
    主角從軟弱陰沉逐漸變得堅強開朗
    散發出光芒的感覺

    Buen libro, aunque me gustó mucho más la primera parte. La parte central se alarga como un chicle y se me hizo eterna, aunque el planteamiento inicial y el final me gustó más.
