The Raven Tower is perhaps one of the greatest books I've read in years. From the perspective of an ancient god who is speaking to our main character Eolo, this book challenges mainstream narration with it's unique style and voice. I was immediately immersed in a world of gods and humans all struggling for power and control. Ann Leckie forces us to look past the norms of society and to imagine something so much greater. The Raven Tower is truly a work of art.
Gods meddle in the fates of men, men play with the fates of gods, and a pretender must be cast down from the throne in this masterful first fantasy novel from Ann Leckie, New York Times bestselling author and winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke Awards.
