But, of course, as everyone who has heard of this book knows, nobody cares about that because it is also an EROTIC fantasy full of KINKY PORN.

....except it really, really isn't.

That's actually why I never read it. I've heard of the Kushiel books a few times, but always in connection with non-stop sex because the lead is trained as a COURTESAN who fucks everyone. And oh, she loves pain.

It is truly amazing how many people find non-stop sex a selling point. (Especially since as a rule, sex scenes are a pause button that affect neither plot nor characterization.)

The court intrigue makes it sound potentially interesting and I absolutely adore your detailed and extremely helpful review, but...I don't know.
