The Stone in the Skull by Elizabeth Bear is the first book in the Lotus Kingdoms trilogy. Gage is an automaton mercenary created by a wizard. He is carrying an important message to the sorcerer of the Lotus Kingdom.
This story was not what I was expecting. I couldn't get into the story. It was too slow paced for me. It was written well, but just not the book for me.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
