It seems that I've always liked a light version of fantasy. In my younger years, I really liked the prose of Jack Vance. His SF work was a combination of fantasy and SF. He wasn't an acquired taste for me as he was for many. My writing can by a bit wry as his was, but I find that I really like to write action/adventure. Generally my heroes and heroines end up with a sword or some other instrument of mayhem in their hands.
I don't go for too much in the way of dragons, elves, gnomes, unicorns, dwarves and other magical creatures. Sorcerers aplenty, but that's where I generally stop. Typically there is a little romance involved to lighten up the fighting and ensorcelling.
I hope you like what you read. If you do, please leave a review. Thanks.

I enjoyed this book. It had some very interesting ideas about the place of magic in a technological (steam-age but not steampunk) world. It's also a story of obsession and redemption with good character development.
The writing style reminds me a little of, perhaps, Jane Austen and took some getting use to but I never felt like putting the book down. It is clever, interesting and its world is one I would love to explore further.
