An ambitious, exciting story-within-a-story,
This review is from: Ash: A Secret History (Paperback)
A tremendous achievement and a very ambitious - and successful - undertaking. Mary Gentle manages to weave an alternative history chronicle, with an modern day research/interpretation drama as the chronicle is unravelled. Lots of action, surprises, groundbreaking ideas and a great read. Perhaps overlong, and at times, a struggle to finish - but very well constructed.
