5.0 out of 5 stars Mary does it again, 26 April 2004
This review is from: Cartomancy (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
Mary gave me a copy of this book last weekend and I thought 'Great,something decent to read at last'. I was wrong. It's a "bloody fantastic,can't put it down, hurry up and finish the next book Mary", type ofbook.
I know that I like Mary, love her style of writing and loved bothASH and GRUNTS, but I just CAN'T put his one down...
As usual she grips your imagination with her easy going style, even ifsome of the character's ahve names that require a bit of lubricationbefore attempting to say them, she easily fools the senses to send youplummeting into the world of Burgundian intrigue. She makes you feel forthe characters, as if they really DID exist, as if you're reading thejournals of REAL people, so vivid are the emotions that her prose evinces.You can almost feel the North African sun glinting back from the swordsand armour. You DO get aroused at lust inspired by the Fox-Spirit inRowena.
Basically, Mary does, again, what Mary does best. Draw thereader lightly and un-relentingly into Mary's world. Keep it up Mary. Longmay the words flow. (And at least some of us DO appreciate the pigs...)
