Necromancer’s teen daughter fights the dead. It gets really …more I struggled with it until page And they have some truly iconic banter. He is a skilled fighter as well, but not as good as Katsa. In other words, I hate Katsa.


What I do not like is the way we’re hammered over the head with the message. The character building was great. I am sometimes a hermit, but never for very long.
