Today's book review is The Lord of Castle Black by Steven Brust.
( The series moves alongCollapse )
On the whole, if you're familiar with Brust's books, and in particular with the Phoenix Guards series, you know what you're getting. If you're not familiar with Brust, don't start with this book! I'm going to give my experience reading it a 7 out of 10, which is probably a lower rating than the book deserves, but it had the misfortune of my choosing to read it at a bad time.
