Fuckin' hell, Santa Olivia is good

Just thought I'd mention that again, in case you missed the last time I raved about it. I reread it after my trashy fantasy binge last week, and my god, it is still so fucking good.

Seriously, of all the queer fantasy I've read, this is the book that is damn near perfect. Jacqueline Carey was already famous for beautiful prose and passionate romance from her Kushiel series and she delivers both in this, along with a marvelously diverse and engaging cast of characters, an immersive, almost claustrophobically intense dystopic atmosphere, and a tight, well-reasoned plot. I have literally nothing to criticize about this book.

...Granted, the sequel is kind of a different story. Maybe I'll reread that too, and finally get around to putting up a review of it.
