Dec 01, 12

Read from November 20 to December 01, 2012

The transition between the Phoenix Guards and the world of Taltos continues, with the recreation of the Empire, the return of the Orb and the tidying up of various problems.

Brust once again demonstrates his joy in language. Even when things are not happening, the dialogue sparkles, the descriptive text in the voice of Paarfi dances around and the action scenes are described in quite glorious pomposity. Great all round, really.

Rated M for battle violence. 4/5
