This review is from: Swarmthief's Dance: Book One of the Swarmthief Trilogy (Paperback)
Who would think that Gods could be so imperfect, petulant and selfish?
The actions of one God and the reaction of another causes major imbalance on the inhabitants of the world of Myr - and in particular for a small band of people.
Although the story is set in a mythical world, the people who inhabit this world are as real as you or me - flawed, imperfect: human. Just when you think you have the measure of a main player, another trait of their character is revealed changing your perception. No one is totally evil or good - but some err near to one extreme than the other. Desire, love, greed and magic are the lynch pins of the story - making a mythical world real.
The pace of the story reflects the rhythms of dance - starting with the central characters circling each other before they steadily join together to form a complex ensemble with the pace of the dance accelerating to finally become a whirling dervish.
I have been totally absorbed in the world of Myr and the fate of its inhabitants. The cliffhanger ending has left me wanting more. I can't wait for the next book to be published
