Book Review: Wisdom's Kiss by Catherine Gilbert Murdock

Title: Wisdom's Kiss

Author: Catherine Gilbert Murdock
Release Date: September 12, 2011

Princess Wisdom, known as Dizzy, longs for a life of adventure far beyond the staid old kingdom of Montagne.
Tips, a soldier, longs to keep his true life secret from his family.
Fortitude, an orphaned maid, longs only for Tips.
These three passionate souls might just attain their dreams while preserving Montagne from certain destruction, if only they can tolerate each other long enough to come up with a plan. Tough to save the world when you can't even be in the same room together.

My Thoughts

Oh where to start?
I really did not enjoy this book at all.
No seriously, there is nothing about this book I can talk up.
It was that bad.
How many different points of view are too many?
Three, four, five? Try eight.

Once you take into account the diary entries, the encyclopedia entries, the letters, the play, the main characters, blah, blah, blah.
FAR TOO MANY voices and often overlapping storytelling makes for very confusing and boring reading.
It was a real CHORE to get through and to be honest, I didn't finish it.

I tried, but between the near constant changing P.O.V and the lackluster writing, it was a tough ask.

The cover is nice, but don't bother. 1 star :[
