I first read this book in a much earlier incarnation: as the two books A Blackbird in Silver and A Blackbird in Darkness. I have only just discovered that there are two more books in the series (Blackbird in Amber and Blackbird in Twilight) but the first two seem to form a complete story on their own. If you read the blurb, don't be put off by the impression it gives of a run-of-the-mill fantasy (the characters names don't help admittedly). This is an extremely original story, involving much more thought on the readers part than the usual DwarvesandElvesandDragons style book, particularly in the different planes of existence. I am not going to provide any spoiler of the book, you have to read it yourself to find out, but be prepared to think.
