5.0 out of 5 stars Another fabulous book by the amazing Ms. Bear, 2 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: By the Mountain Bound (Mass Market Paperback)
You MUST read the first volume in this trilogy(?) All the Windwracked Stars, to get the hang of the story. This is a prequel - explaining what happened in the run up to the first book.

SO... perhaps you should read this first - and will then really "get" the first book? No, perhaps not.

Anyway - for all you fans (hope we are plural) of the amazingly literate Elizabeth Bear - read this and be delighted!

This is not straight-forward fantasy. It is (sort of) the retelling of the legend of the Valkyrie and the lead up the apocalypse of Ragnarok. A tale of heroes, and heroic deeds, of mystic ladies (who are not who or what they seem) and the ultimate tragedy of their society (and perhaps all societies) - the total and utter destruction of their world - by their own hands...

Hmmm. Just terrific - with Ms. Bear's usual astonishing lyrical writing. Bring on the next one...
