The Sixth Surrender by Hana Samek Norton

The Sixth Surrender by Hana Samek Norton (Rated: S)
Plume (Penguin Group)
ISBN: 978-0452296237
Published: July 27, 2010
Trade Paperback, 480 pages

After reading about 100 pages I decided not to finish this novel. I didn’t care for the characters, especially the male protagonist (crude, selfish, lacking morals, promiscuous…) I also had a hard time following the political intrigue—unless you know early 13th century Medieval well (I am only familiar with it) you can become lost when the author throws in too many plots. In addition, in so far as I got, there are explicit sex scenes and profanity (taking God’s name in vain and vulgar words). Too bad, because the writing is good and so is the book cover.

Disclosure: Thanks to Bronwyn Kienapple from Penguin Group Canada for sending me this book for review. I was not compensated in any other way, nor told how to rate or review this product.
