Review of Trust a Few by E.M. Swift-Hook
If you have watched world class figure skating and held your breath as the contestants spin and leap through their performance, pushing the very boundaries of physics then you will know the tension this author can generate. The main characters, all together on the same wafer-thin ice perform their complex individual dances till Death, the ultimate judge, calls time.
True to the first three books of this series the twists and turns of the plot and the diverse aims and emotions of the protagonists refuse to give up the conclusion till the last sentence.
This is a new world, with new characters and a level of technology which would have seemed witchcraft in the previous setting but Avalon and Durban Chola are still the main thread pullers in this tapestry of intrigue and treachery.
Just enough background is common to the previous stories not to leave the reader floundering in the unknown but as before, just when you begin to think you know where the story is going solid ground turns to quicksand and only by keeping the pages turning will you reach the masked finale.
If you are a fan of Fortunes Fools then you are in for another treat. If you have not read the first trilogy then don’t delay in starting on them. This saga gets better with every twist of the plot and you are depriving yourself of entering one of the best science fantasy worlds available.

Jane Jago Agree absolutely. The woman wields a pen (keyboard) like a scalpel
