An excellent fantasy novel. I was intrigued by the title (I'm still not entirely certain how it relates to the book), and discovered a fantastically realised world, and character within the world. An intriguing plot, involving goddesses, the main character's uneasy past, and a brilliant mass of sub-plots.
One of the things I particularly liked was the way the swords used by the mercenary problem solver Eddie LaCrosse had brand names, like guns. There were fantastic action scenes, intense emotional sections, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Can't wait to find the sequel.
