Another “told from the point of view of the bad guy” stories from Maguire; when I started, I wasn’t necessarily in the mood for fiction, let alone fantasy, since I’d just finished 13 Bankers. But it carried me along with the clear narrative voice, and the curiosity of what exactly what going on. It’s a good story, not necessarily a favorite, but the imagery sticks in my head. Not just the somewhat expected dysfunctional families, but the clarity of a certain place and time, like a painting. Good stuff.
