I am so, so dissapointed. I was expecting this amazing book, and it's ok but I wouldn't call it amazing. first of all there just isn't enough world building. this isn't an underworld and ghosts that have always existed, they appeared. it doesn't make sense. then the rivalry between the archivist and the upstarts. there needs to be something that causes it to endure for centuries. the priest is just one man, you're telling me it evolved that way for no real reason and just stuck? uh.... no. I'm perfectly willing to throw logic out the window for a good book, but there is only so much I can take. there is no logic, things are because the plot needs them to be and that's not enough for me. beautifully written though.
