Gorgeously written but sad as all get out. Tarr's writing reminds me of Patricia McKillip's, but I prefer McKillip's magic-making and its joy to the real-world loss and strife of Tarr's semi-historical novels. Still, for folks with a higher angst tolerance, this is a very good book.

These were read at an awesome time in my life - was going for my MLS, working as a receptionist for an unopened facility (meaning I received no one!) so all I did all day was sit and read. Yes, essentially I was getting paid to sit and read. I read over 100 books that year. Why can't I get that gig now???????

Despite the evils of the church, the kindred retain their faith. Why?
