I've been waiting for a book that I really felt like I could give five stars to. This one is it. If you like fantasy and clever magic in books, you should read this. I'm serious. Super big recommendation from me if that means anything to you.
I'm always looking for that next book that really hooks me in and gives me that sense of escapism that I think I look for in fiction. Since I'm a bigger reader of speculative fiction, a lot of the time it's in the fantasy genre that this happens, since it's far enough removed from the real world that it engages my imagination in new ways. Science fiction can get me there, but only if it's done really well. Done poorly and my engineer's brain starts poking holes in it and I can't really let myself fall into the narrative.
