Daemons are for laughing at
on 2 May 2009
A great story from one of the best fantasy SF authors currently doing business, Simon has a refreshingly irreverant take on the genre. The humour is dry and the characters all seem very believable though the clincher in all of his books come down to the story itself, I've read nearly everything he has written and Simon is yet to repeat himself. Well enough of that, the story this time follows our hero Edwin Drood and his paramour dealing with the aftermath of the destruction of the power behind the Drood. Another epic tale with nods to the future and past (including the addition of characters and locations from other books again)
The difficulty in writing a review is how much to give away and what to discuss in the story, let me say that the elevator is unique as is the train set :D I enjoyed it and I'm sure you will as well.
Just one question, who are Bruin Bear and the Sea goat based on?
