    One thought on “The Raven Tower

      I rushed to Netgalley to get hold of an advance copy of this book based on how much I enjoyed Leckie s science fiction series The Raven Tower is fantasy which I also love, but somehow this one just missed the mark for me.Of course the writing is good and as usual for this author it is presented in an unusual way Very unusual actually since the narrator is a rock who is also a god This god spends a large part of the book philosophising on anything and everything as to be expected since he does I [...]

      Holy sh t, y all And let me repeat holy sh t.I have to start this review with how I heard about this book I had the amazing opportunity to meet with Ann Leckie twice during SIBA18, both during the Rise of Alt SFF panel and again during the moveable feast of authors, where she had 90 seconds to tell my table about her first foray into fantasy I loved the way she summarized her book and I have no doubt her synopsis will sound way, way better than anything I could pen, so I m going to unapologe Hol [...]

      Here is a story I ve heard Ann Leckie has written a highly absorbing, beautifully imagined fantasy novel, with a quirky, atmospheric and highly engaging character voice I probably didn t need to take the third party precautionary measure because I believe this to be true, but care in all things, especially when you pick up The Raven Tower because it will deprive you of sleep and leave you longing for.In a world where God s and human s intertwine, a God cannot speak false One God tells the Here i [...]

      Here is a story I have heard.It is a story that is easy to admire, to appreciate, to acknowledge as something wholly unique within the fantasy genre, and yet it is a difficult one to enjoy You likely have never read a story quite like it, and whether you would like to read another is probably what will divide the fans from the frustrated Here is another story I have heard.It is a story that is technically impressive, told with an unusual point of view, and through an original voic [...]

      Ann Leckie seems to enjoy writing books in which the main characters are big, sentient objects.I m a bookseller who received an advance reader copy of the book after having the pleasure of meeting Ann at the SIBA Discovery Show I was extremely excited about the work, having been a fan of Ancillary Justice Well, The Raven Tower lived up to my lofty expectations Like the Ancillary Trilogy, this work showcases Ann s incredible skill for building fantastical realms The central trope is a sort Ann Le [...]
