The House of War and Witness by Mike Carey
"Interestingly low-key, slow-burn, high drama. It's not a huge, epic tale spreading across vast swathes, but a much more small-scale and intimate window into war - one little incident, one small village, little people dancing to the tune of larger..." Read more of this review »
