Jeg hadde hørt mye om boka før jeg begynte å lese den og var skeptisk, men også veldig nysgjerrig. Jeg ble imponert over den utrolig godt konstruerte hovedpersonen og et helt usedvanlig plott. Kannibalistiske nonner med magi? En politisk sammensvergelse og en revolusjon? Gimme, gimmie! Passer perfekt for dem som lider av Gideon the Ninth abstinenser.
Elfreda Raughn will avoid pregnancy if it kills her, and one way or another, it will kill her. Though she's able to stomach her gruesome day-to-day duties, the reality of preserving the Sisterhood of Aytrium's magical bloodline horrifies her. She wants out, whatever the cost.
So when a shadowy cabal approaches Elfreda with an offer of escape, she leaps at the opportunity. As their spy, she gains access to the highest reaches of the Sisterhood, and enters a glittering world of opulent parties, subtle deceptions, and unexpected bloodshed.
A phantasmagorical indictment of hereditary power, Star Eater takes readers deep into a perilous and uncanny world where even the most powerful women are forced to choose what sacrifices they will make, so that they might have any choice at all.
