To all the books I’ve loved before: I’m sorry. Really. But it’s over. We’re done. We just can’t see each other any more. It’s not because of you, honestly. It’s because of me. Because I’ve read something else, something special, and I just can’t forget it anymore. Never. I’ll never stop loving you, but it’s just not the same. I’m really, really sorry, but we’re done. I’ll never forget you, but Dorothy Dunnett’s „A Game of Kings“ is just perfect. We can still stay friends, though.


This is perhaps the most unique fantasy book written in the last fifty years, both intelligent and fascinating. You need a lot of patience for this one – I don’t think I’ve ever needed this much time for a book I really liked, but it’s totally worth it. The writing is superb, the characters are strong and entertaining, and the world-building is in a league of its own.
