Darkening Skies (The Hadrumal Crisis) by McKenna Juliet E.
4.0 out of 5 stars Solidly enjoyable, 19 Sep 2013
Tightly plotted, excellent world building, fully realised believable characters; this is what I've come to expect from Juliet Mckenna and she continues to deliver.

3.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying second book, 26 Aug 2013
Only 3 stars because compared to Book 1 the jumping around the timeline annoyed me more, too much introspection from Jorg and I didn't like the way the final confrontation was resolved.

Do you like complex plots in interesting settings, told from multiple points of views? Then this might be for you. There are a lot of characters, but they are well-drawn and consistent. The setting is a welcome deviation from the usual default of medieval Europe - a fantastic version of 1001 Arabian Nights. Very nicely done, and I couldn't see the joins between the multiple authors.
