Fox's Bride - A.E. Marling

"A scribal survey found overwhelming favor in the pilgrims for the 'Running of the Fennecs.'“

 

The priest blubbered. “B-but that was a calamity.”


“A 'cataclysmic success' would be more accurate,” the vizier said. “No fewer than five hundred and forty three pilgrims demanded reassurance of the event's return next year. Not one complaint about the lack of executions.” (260)

 

I'm pretty sure this religious event would be popular with more than just pilgrims.

 

This second book was still a tad too surreal for my tastes, and yet I definitely plan on continuing on with the series. I look forward to seeing Hiresha continue to test her assumptions about herself and what enchantresses supposedly can and cannot do.
