Slaves of the Mastery - William Nicholson


This is much better than the first in the trilogy - not as weird and twisted, perhaps more derivative (c.f. Northern Lights, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars) but harmonious and satisfying. The moral points are subtler than before, and more effective because of it. Also, a well imagined, consistent world. I'm not expecting a happy ending to this trilogy, though...
