This is a powerful and gripping book, and I simply couldn't put it down. It's probably the best novel I've read so far this year and I'm not sure much can beat it. Humane and fascinating, we follow the story of Will, his friends and his enemies through a series of encounters, both with themselves and with the supernatural world around them. It's good stuff.I intend to review this exceptional fantasy novel for Vulpes Libris, so these are only short comments, but I can only encourage you to buy it. And not only if you're fans of fantasy, but also if you're not. Very readable indeed.
