I read two absolutely terrific fantasies this week and they were glorious! The other books weren’t half bad either.
But seriously, Spinning Silver and The Magic of Recluce were both epically awesome. If you liked Uprooted, you’ll love Spinning Silver, and vice versa. They are not part of the same series, so you can read one without the other or in any order. But they are both wonderfully fractured fairy tales, so if you like that sort of thing (I certainly do!) get them both. You’ll thank me later.
I adore Modesitt’s Imager Portfolio, but I was able to get in on that on the ground floor, so to speak. When Imager came out in 2009, The Saga of Recluce was already on book 16, and none of the books in that series are exactly skinny. I just couldn’t get a round tuit. But now that I’ve read the first one and loved it, I’m going back. The Magic of Recluce was grand!
