About a sixth way through the book, and it's the first time in months - maybe years, god, I haven't read in so long - that I sat down for a solid three hours and did almost a hundred pages of a new author at one go. It's brilliant fantastic fiction (as opposed to fantasy, which comes High most of the time), like a more Rice-d out Gaiman, and jesus, he writes rich dynastic bastards better than I ever will.
More on this when I'm fangirling less hard. \o\
An unfortunate retraction - three quarts through the book and something dies; the relationships that are meant to be bedrocks fall through, and the suspension of disbelief can't hold up to tension strung out too long that it goes slack. DDDD:
Oh, K, go!
