A Woman Worth Ten Coppers by Morgan Howell

A Woman Worth Ten Coppers (Shadowed Path, #1)This book keeps being on the shelf I walk past. I has a great title. Some great books have smut-tastic covers, so I finally picked it up.

Yim the Seer knows she has to go somewhere. Her guide is killed and she is sold as a beautiful slave.

Honus was told by his master the Seer (who just got killed) that he must never carry his own pack, so he buys… wait for it… Yim, to carry his pack. But Honus is holy and doesn’t rape her, yay. But we must all assume that a woman traveling in torn clothing is a whore, not just, ya know, poor.

They travel on and on (and on and on and on) the most boring trip ever, while discussing the new god that is ruining the land. Yim who can read (unusual for a girl) sees Honus’s tattoos on his back, where he can’t ever see them. Her name is there. They cannot discuss this, because he is not supposed to know what the Seers saw about him. DESTINY IS AFOOT

I skipped to the back to see if DESTINY ever gets a horse to move a little bit faster, but nope – this book is a set up, conclusions are in the next book. I’m not reading all that. Good by, book.
