This is the tenth in my one-book-at-a-time bookshelf.
This is the first book in a breath taking trilogy. I can't remember when I first read it or how many times I've gone back to it, but I've never been disappointed. I recall reading somewhere that the author said it was something she wrote when younger and not something she could still write. I'm not surprised. There is an energy and inventiveness here that has the exuberance and daring of youth.
