Kushiel's Dart - Jacqueline Carey

Subterfuge and sex.

The main focus of this book is a young woman who is trained as a courtesan, but has a minor biological flaw. It turns out that this is important, and a rare sign of her being a supernaturally excellent example of a sadomasochistic sexual servant.

Being really good as this also brings her to the attention of spymasters, given that sex and spying go rather well together.

Reasonable book, but too long and hence gets tedious for me.

3 out of 5
