The Tower of Living and Dying by Anna Smith Spark
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Amazing, amazing, and amazing. The Queen of "grimdark" returns to her throne with the next installment of the Empires of Dust trilogy. This book is a masterwork of brutality covered in a silk glove, This is a bleak, bloody place...everything is crashing together to meet the most violent of ends and yet, the story Ms Spark weaves keeps you entranced and wanting to see it through to the very end.
If you haven't read this series, DO SO NOW, Imagine if George RR Martin took lots of acid and ratcheted up the tension on his books, you would sort of get the idea what this is like.
READ IT, I don't do you wrong. 900290 stars out of 5
