This review is from: The Boy with the Porcelain Blade (The Erebus Sequence Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Lucien de Fontein is an Orfano, one accorded all the privileges of status, but without being an actual part of one of the four families of Landfall – an Italianate land of intrigue and increasing strangeness. Patrick weaves two threads of the story in time towards a stunning final conclusion that showcases a vast imagination teeming with plots and intrigues. The writing and the world set up a sequence of three books that, if they live up to the promise of the first, will be gladly read by those who think fantasy is tired as well as its most die-hard fans.
