That ship has sailed

The Awakened Mage - Karen Miller

This was an audiobook, so I don't have any notes or detailed quotes on all the things that annoyed and irritated me. Suffice to say that the reliance on well worn misogynistic tropes and writing has got old. If we add to that the disappointing and forced hetero-normative non-romance and a boring all-powerful villain, there just isn't enough left for a second star.

 

I do know that Miller has written more books since, but I'm going to go with no. This author isn't for me.
