AN AUTUMN WAR – Daniel Abraham (2008)

An Autumn WarThe third in the series, one of the better books I’ve ever read, and probably the best of the series so far. Surprising, emotional, compassionate, deep, character driven, moving, and utterly original. As the title suggests, this time the focus is on war, and as such it is again a totally different book than the previous two, again with a story that concludes itself nicely in this volume itself.

And again, Abraham’s prose is gorgeous: so clear and seemingly easy, yet gems of beautiful images and razor-sharp observations are spread throughout.

Don’t dwell on it, go read it. Of course, start with book one of the quartet, A Shadow In Summer.
