it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction

This must have been the first book I read by C.J Cherryh. I distinctly remember reading it and the gut-deep feeling it evoked, but didn't recall anything about the characters or plot. I also didn't realize that it was by one of my favorite authors, so I can only guess I read it before any of her other books and didn't put two and two together.

I stumbled across the book again this week and remembered the cover but nothing inside, so decided to reread it. Despite pretending to be science fiction, this book is just a really good fantasy tale of a spunky heroine in a medieval Venice-like environment. It's "science fiction" the same way the Pern books are, but is vastly superior in writing, characters, and plot.
