Om författaren

Ben Peek was born on October 12, 1976 in Australia. His short stories have been published in a variety of genre magazines, including Fantasy Magazine and Aurealis. His fiction has been reprinted in various Year's Best volumes. In 2000, he created a zine called The Urban Sprawl Project, a black and visa mer white pamphlet of photography and prose, and this remains the name of his online journal. In 2006 his autobiography, Twenty-Six Lies/One Truth, was published by Wheatland Press. In 2007, Black Sheep, a dystopian novel, was published by Prime Books. In 2007, Peek also began collaborating with artist Anna Brown on Nowhere Near Savannah, an online comic that in part follows on from their original collaboration on Twenty-Six Lies/One Truth. Peek holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Western Sydney, and a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of New South Wales, during which he wrote the novel A Year in the City. Peek's writing is best described as speculative fiction. In 2015 his title Godless was nominated for Best Novel by the Ditmar Awards. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

I've been babbling about this since I read it -- I really enjoyed this. Keeping in mind that I don't read much epic fantasy to begin with, this is like epic fantasy for fantasy veterans in that it breaks a lot of the expected tropes in half. It's political and working itself up to something more dire, but philosophical and thinking about the connotations and consequences of a world whose gods have died but where their power hasn't quite faded. It was good. I think Malazan fans would like it. The second book just came out in the US today (yesterday?) and I may have to pick it up in the near future.… (mer)

Really a 3.5. Good enough to read the sequel; but not an OMGILOVETHIS book. Interesting premise. Refreshing lack of sexism and racism. I feel like he's trying to make a Point wrt religion and I don't yet know what it is, which prevents me from just getting into the plot.

Love the diversity, love the power-and-responsibility themes (how do the mice play when the cats are all dead, shades of Max Gladstone) but I just couldn't get into the narrative style, so setting aside.

Took a while to get in to this book. Lots of concepts to get your head around. Enjoyed it when I finally managed to do this! Library only had book 1 though, so...
