really liked it

I read a pre-production proof of this book and I must say I think it's a great new idea for a fantasy book. Set in the time of the three musketeer's but with added dragons and alchemy. Quite dark in places, beautifully written, so much so that you can really imagine the dank, dingy sewage infested streets of 17th century Paris. Infact, it's so well detailed, and described, down to street names, that you could almost use it as a guide for 21st century Paris too! And now in the time honoured fashion of bookselling, I shall read the first book second!
