Decamp with an innocent toiler and his mysterious female companion to a metaphoric world in the clouds—a strange, vertiginous perch that reveals startling insights about the twisted dynamics of love and power.

Thank you, Goodreads and Rich Shapero for giving me a chance to read Balcony of Fog!

“King of the Heaven. Beholden to None.”

Ok there a lot of people saying that this book was just flat out awful. I can agree to some of what has been said but, I will not say that was a waste of my time. So here it goes the world building that Rich Shapero did in this book was amazing. Such great detail. He has definitely built a world that is very intriguing. The cloud ships and the realm its self was magical to read about.

Now for the part that I didn’t like. I think the characters back story or their personalities didn’t come out very well or it just wasn’t there at all. If as much thought that went into the world building was put into developing the characters and explaining in some parts why it was even happening this book would have been a lot better. Happy reading everyone! ( )

I could only make it halfway through this before I decided to take the advice to not waste time on things that do not bring joy. This story has failed to capture my attention and the characters seem arbitrary. One of the problems--in my opinion--of fantasy fiction is that the writer can just make up the rules of how things work as they go which makes it difficult to appreciate a situation.
Shapero blurs more lines than he creates in this story and I cannot get myself to care about what happens to the characters. Because there seem to be no rules (one character was married to a god and now the two protagonists are riding through the sky on a cloud--yeah, it's like that) it is impossible to understand what is a real conflict and what is arbitrary.
I'm sure some people can really enjoy this, but even the parts written on terra firma seemed disconnected and difficult to follow. ( )

In the first 23 pages, a man has been beaten into unconsciousness by a supervisor, and upon awakening, he finds himself approached in the fog by a naked woman. Why is she naked? Who can say? Because boobs? Anyway, after a brief interaction in which she reveals that she is fleeing from a horrible, possibly abusive, relationship and he agrees to hide her, they are suddenly having sex because apparently our hero is irresistible despite an utter lack of personality or inflection. In fairness, she not only lacks inflection and personality but also autonomy.

What happens next? Well, that will just have to be an eternal mystery because I simply am not going to finish this.

I received a complimentary copy of this, well two actually, from a Book Riot giveaway, and I really wish I hadn't. ( )

This is a story about love in the past and present. About how the past can affect the present. Where does the line between love and possession lie? Where does love become control or abuse? Who is in control, the strong or the weak. How does it change us? ( )
