Sarah Monette: Melusine

I had been looking forward to this book.

I suppose I was expecting something different after seeing the Jacqueline Carey blurb, but I was disappointed.

I enjoyed the book. Sarah writes beautifully, and the worldbuilding is to be envied.

Curiously enough, I liked Mildmay the thief better than I did Felix Harrowgate the wizard. But Mildmay was also shown in a more heroic light than Felix, so I suppose it balances out.

I don’t know whether I will be getting the sequel, The Virtu, but I’d certainly suggest that you give Melusine a try.

This rates a 8 out of 10.
