Very promising and well thought out,

This review is from: The Poison Master (Paperback)
Just a brief comment on the review above: I'm a great Mary Gentle fan so the alchemy/science fiction blend this book is based on didn't come as such an innovation. (John Crowley as well, come to think of it.) That said I liked the central concept here and there were some very original touches, especially the idea of different drugs having a spiritual as well as physical effect. Liz Williams' writing here flows well (less hard work than MG's can be at times) and I liked the love interest. I'll be looking out for other books by this writer.
