Jim Butcher’s new series started with a bang. A disgraced navy officer, in charge of his own privateer. Towering spire cities filled to the brim with humanity, permanently in a state of conflict. Noble families, Etherealists, guardsmen, you name it, Jim Butcher has it in spades in his latest novel.
My only issue with the book is that I have to wait for number 2 in the series.
The characterisations are deep, vibrant and resonate with life. Each has a history, scope and focus and are richly woven within the story and to the world where they live.
Loved the book. Grabbed me from the first page.
