5.0 out of 5 stars Swarmthief's Dance, 28 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Swarmthief's Dance: Book One of the Swarmthief Trilogy (Paperback)
Swarmthief's Dance
Gods are perfect, never make a mistake - or so I thought! An imperfect, petulant (male) God's lust for a (female) God causes waves in his domain that ripple out causing chaos on the world of Myr.
Although Swarmthief's Dance is set in a mythical world, the leading characters are as real and human as you and me. They are multi dimensional, complex and all have facets to their individual character that is endearing. Even the 'evil' characters have moments of vulnerability and gentleness.
Scratch the surface of the story - and you have to examine your own prejudices to issues such as class, religion or disability. Darker moments in the story are balanced with the use of humour and magic - but it remains a grown up book written in a mature and confident style.
The pace of the story follows the steps of a theatrical dance. Starting with the main characters slowly circling each other, enticing each other to join in, before the ensemble starts to build the steps into a complex rhythm that ends in a whirling dervish. This visual and emotional journey ends in a cliffhanger leaving the reader wanting more.
I have really enjoyed reading Swarmthief's Dance and was totally absorbed by the story. I cannot wait to find out what happens next - roll on the next book in the trilogy.
