Read in March, 2009

Slightly unusual fantasy, this. There are no monsters, no magic, no elves, no gods (no religion, in fact). Just humans and good, solid medieval technology. Best way to describe it would be to call it a clockwork book - the characters have roles to play, but the roles are preordained by the master clockmaker (Parker) who knows just where the plot is going. It's rather hard to describe without giving too much away. Suffice to say that the writing is gorgeous and the plot is more than half decent. And he's not afraid to bump off viewpoint characters when necessary, which is always a plus. I like it a lot. Rated MA for violence and coarse language. 4.5/5
