I am not so sure I'm going to listen to your recommendations so plainly anymore, my friends. Yes, yes, Turner is a clever clogs and it's good read but 7/8ths of a book with one set of characters and 1/8 with the real characters and I feel flippantly treated. I worked hard to like Gen and the mage and I did like Pol. So you can imagine how I felt about his sudden death, a death that only seemed necessary in order to keep the unreliable narrator trick going till the last possible minute. Reading The Kind of Attolia next because I'm about 45th in line for book 2 at the library.
