|Wow, another fantastic book in the Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne mystery series. After the last book I didn't think it was possible for her to top herself, but she managed to find a way, and boy, is this a readable, wonderful, terrific, passionate and exciting book. If you haven't read this series I highly recommend it. But you'll want to start with the first one, "In The Bleak Midwinter." And then I dare you to be able to stop. Go on, try it.|
Sometimes I adore being a librarian. We get advanced reader's copies (ARCs)! This book is not actually due to be published till July 8th, but imagine my delight when I found it in the latest box of ARCs. I shrieked with excitement. Everyone else in the office wondered if I had gone a bit cracked.
Anyway, the book (the fifth in the Temeraire series) was wonderful -- well written, thought provoking, and awesome. Yay!
