The Heart of Stone contains one of my new favorite characters in the genre: the wind-cut golem, Task. This 400 year old warrior with his compelling existentialism and struggle with rage will have you turning page after page. Highly recommend!
Faithless is an intimate tale about two characters dealing with deep emotional trauma. This story has elements of horror and fantasy weaved together artfully so as to dramatize the characters' problems for the story without cheapening or disrupting that reality. It's got intrigue, mystery, religion, and FIRE. Read this book!
