Are you tired of waiting for Scott Lynch to finish the next Gentlemen Bastards book? Have you exhausted the complete Robin Hobb catalog and are stymied from further satisfaction due to her prohibition on fan fiction? Maybe want to give a new author a whirl? Try this. The sequel is already out, so if you like it, there's no need to jones in vain. The action is well-paced, the world well-realized, and the characters appealing. If it has a few improbable twists ... at least the plucky tarboy in love with the prince's betrothed isn't also the secret son of the emperor or something.
