Interesting concept, though I still had a lot of questions about how the world setup worked. Dean's writing often doesn't work for me, sadly, and I felt a bit of that here -- dialogue and diction is somewhat choppy, and the characters mysterious in a way that becomes opaque. I think it's the style of fantasy writing that was popular in the '90s that I don't care so much for, very poetic but often making me wish the author would explain things better, instead of drawing pretty and ambiguous strokes.
