it was amazing

Read in February, 2005

A Dickensian sheen on a very dark and melancholy story about obsession, power, love and Faustian bargains. Don't let the fantasy element scare you off: The magic in this novel feels plausible and magnificent, and its use has costs and consequences that are integral to the story. Seriously, one of the best books I've read in ten years.
