Much like Wheel of the Infinite, this is a second-world story with a super-interesting protagonist.
In a world that has been nearly-destroyed, the survivors cluster in cities separated by vast swathes of Waste. Only those foolhardy or bred to it venture out into it, and even then at great peril.
We follow two men who deal in the relics of the lost civilization before them, in a sort of grey market. There are palace politics, magic for good and ill, soothsayers, oracles, and ghosts. There are males and females who are not at all attracted to each other, and some who are.
This is one of those books where you wake up the next day looking forward to reading more of it, and you are bitterly disappointed when you realize it's over.
Read if: you like a post-apocalyptic city story. You appreciate the wisdom of the ancients.
Skip if: you don't like slightly dire post-apocalyptic stories.
