Black Sun Rising, by C.S. Friedman

Black Sun Rising

This is a highly satisfying fantasy that takes place on another world. Following the tradition of fantasy novels, the world-building is superb, the characters are compelling, and the plot is, if somewhat predictable, redeemed by the sheer satisfaction of watching the characters struggle and ultimately prevail. In fact, the novel makes sure that what secrets are hidden from the characters can be uncovered by the attentive reader. Still, there are surprises.

For excellent writing, an intriguing magic system, and the fact that this book made me lose track of time for far too long, I give it a Highly Recommended, for those who want a nice book to get lost in.
