Lamentation Lamentation by Ken Scholes


My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The city of Windwir, with its huge Library, explodes in a devastating attack, killing everyone in it. An ancient weapon has been rediscovered, but who is ultimately responsible? It is an event that fundamentally changes the world and its people, down to their fundamental beliefs.

This is a rich fantasy novel. The world is interesting and well-drawn. The writing is sharp and the characters stay with you. It is full of political intrigue and riveting twists and turns that keep you turning pages, even through a couple of (slightly) slower parts. Sequels are expected, and I plan to read (the first is due out in October).

If you enjoy fantasy novels, particularly of political-type intrigue, put this at the top of your list.
