it was amazing
bookshelves: fantastic-fantasy
Read from January 15 to March 30, 2012

I regret to have to leave this lovingly built world.

Imagine if Tolkien had been an Amerindian.

A lovingly built country inhabited by various races, and genre-bending, the stuff of a great adventure movie.

More later.
