Ilario: The Lion's Eye


I really struggled with this book. It took me eight days to read a 322 page book, which is a long time for me. I didn't care for the plot, and many times, it devolved into soapiness. It's a shame because I would think there'd be so much you could do with a story about a true hermaphrodite during the Renaissance. This is the first of a two-part series. It ends in a cliffhanger, but I don't feel any compulsion to read the second part.
