bookshelves: science-fiction
Read in November, 2007

This book is mammoth with a great esoteric vocabulary, swashbuckling adventure, a mix of real and fictional characters and events as well as insights into finances and philosophy at the end of the 1600s. It was fun to trace out the maps within cities and around the globe. The plot is solid but would not be sufficiently intriguing if you did not find these other things interesting. The ending is unsatisfactory as the author wants you to read the next book in the cycle. I do intend to read the next book
