Very densely plotted adventure set in a fictional medieval world. By not filling the story with extraneous details the plot directly pulls the story along. Very nice start to a rewarding trilogy. Reminds me a bit of Ursula LeGuin or Monica Furlong in style.

Thoroughly inventive, thoughtful and unpredictable adventure. It was a real joy to read. Great storytelling. So nice to read something 'fantastic' which does not rely on predictable fantasy elements like magic, wizards, etc.
