This is a really solid fantasy novel. I hated A Canticle for Leibowitz, and strongly disliked Anathem, but the knowledge-worshiping monks in Lamentation manage to be interesting characters moving in a well-actualized and internally consistent world and are described in English, not cutesy SF gibberish. It is all setup for a new series, unfortunately, so the identity of a certain mysterious figure will remain unknown until Scholes comes out with more books. It's worth getting started, though. Recommended.
