Read it in spurts over a two-day period -- damned work. At any rate, I think I will reread before posting a full-out review, but for now, here is what I've got to say.

SPOILERS for those who have not read the book )

As I said,a more detailed and coherent review later, once I've reread the book and let it sink in properly. But at the moment, all I really want to do is sit down with the author and pick her brain about how on earth to write such gorgeous and intricately structured novels.

Rereading Mélusine, as I am currently first on the list for The Virtu at the library. It holds up beautifully the second time, and I've caught things on this reading that I did not the first time round -- not unexpected at all.

So, those thoughts. Warning: Spoilers for the novel, and Chapters 1-4 of The Virtu )

At least some of these might be answered in The Virtu, I suspect, but considering that there are four books altogether, it's entirely possible that I might be left hanging for some time longer. ;) At least it's entirely worthwhile, as far as I'm concerned.
