So, I’m scrambling to get my ducks in a row before ArmadilloCon, so little in terms of a proper post. If you are at ArmadilloCon, come say hello. You might just walk away with an ARC of The Imposters of Aventil. And speaking of, check out the first review for The Imposters of Aventil, which just hit the net.
Maresca has form in this area – a slow burning plot, with investigations, discoveries, false leads and revelations, leading to an explosive conclusion. He doesn’t disappoint this time either. I was turning pages to work out exactly what was going on, trying to understand what drove the murders, who was behind them and why – and then, as that started to gel together, kept turning pages to see what would happen next. It’s a sharply observed investigative thriller, this one, in a mature and well crafted fantasy world.
