A distinctive series which has the temerity to reinvent itself with each volume. Shadow introduces us to the melange of societal and personal bonds which will determine the indeterminate future for the cities of the Khaiem. Betrayal is an excellent stepping-stone mix of Lear and MacBeth. Autumn War provides the necessary perspective on the power enmeshed by the poets and ruthlessly thrusts home with the culmination of fears previously honed. Spring realizes an aftermath most authors would not bother to imagine in brilliant fashion. The weight and momentum of emotional investment in the characters delivered is thoroughly earned since at least a decade passes between each volume. This is elegant fantasy for those tired of over-fat, hackneyed clones and it leaves only one question. Why didn't I read it sooner?
