World Fantasy Best Novel (nominee)
Volsky shines in what is unequivocally her best work to date, presenting a wondrous journey across a world torn by war, a world so enraptured by its technological advances that it now frowns upon magic as ancient superstition. Yet a new magical discovery--Sentient Fire, which obeys the will of its creator--could well prove the only weapon against the expansion of a greedy Imperium.
