Smith, Sherwood -- Treason's Shore
Conclusion of an epic fantasy quadrilogy which deserves to become a
standard-bearer of the genre. (Only the genre has become so enormous
that it's hard for anybody to make a dent.) It's about people growing
up, people's families, politics, battles, a war, and lurking horrors
from the depths of time. It has many, many points of view -- and I
mean that at both the personal, generational, and cultural levels.
(And we get just enough of a view of the lurking horrors to realize
that they have a point of view, which I love.)
And it's mostly full of people who, when they have terrible
life-strangling romantic problems, sit down and talk sensibly about
them. Eventually. Mostly. I admit that this book has an undue number
of people who refuse to write to each other even when they're on
unlimited texting plans.
