I finished A Star Shall Fall by Marie Brennan a couple of days ago.

It was made of yay. Due to authorial toying-with-the-reader, and also the new Prince of Stone, who is kind of adorable.

It was less brain-eaty than the earlier books, which I think might be because the language is getting more modern, and maybe also because it was less history-intensive- the real-world history involved is mostly DOOM!COMET OF DOOM!

I much liked it.

Also, if I tried posting this the day I'd read it, I'd be trying to hint at spoilers without actually being spoilery, and probably giving away too much. Today, I have not, although I still think it would be fun to read someone the epilogue quote while they're halfway through the novel, just to see how much freakoutage it would cause as they go on.

...I just realised something about another nuance of the epilogue quote. And that it's basically meant to cause said freakoutage where it is in the book, if one is in the right frame of mind, which I wasn't.

Anyway, coolness.
