This is an elegant novel. I don't usually read Fantasy, but was fortunate enough to be sent an advance reader copy. This was a treat - poetic and rich, without being heavy handed. The language and imagery are colourful, compelling and unique. The story is dense and full of magic - it follows Jaden, an initiate into an other-worldly council of alchemists, a place full of secrets and hidden allegiances. What happens in that dimension influences our world. A story of ancient manuscripts, wise scribes, other dimensions, and disappearing bees, amongst much else. Highly recommended.
