I probably should have read the first two books of the series before I got this one but it didn't seem necessary. I thought because I had recently read the second book and it was not confusing at all that this one would be the same. I got very confused and gave up. The preface helped explain who the main character was but I still didn't understand the story enough to enjoy it.
I don't think that Scrivener's Moon was my type of book, I was expecting something more like The Last Princess by Galaxy Craze when I read the back so no wonder I was a little bit disappointed.
