I mostly read science fiction, but every once in a while I’ll dig into fantasy, especially by certain favorite writers. Â Aliette DeBodard is one of my favorites. Â Her House of Shattered Wings didn’t disappoint. This dark fantasy set in an alternate Paris turned out to be an excellent read, full of flawed and magnificent characters, real threats, powerful magic, and small intrigues.
I highly recommend it.
Note that there are multiple breathtaking cover images of this book. I consider that a testament to the powerfully evocative imagery in the book.
