I’ve been a long time fan of Phil Tucker and have read his Godsblood trilogy, Chronicles at the black gate and Euphoria Online series. So I was really happy to hear he had new book in the works and even happier to be given a chance to read an advance copy. Bastion is set in a new fantasy world with an premise that is new and, I think, quite unusual.
Having characters re-incarnate without memories is a nice way of allowing us to discover the world of Bastion through their eyes.
There a nice mix of well-fleshed out characters with realistic imperfections and the plot has many satisfying twists, turns and surprises.
I had real trouble putting this down and, having finished it, am already waiting for the next book in the series.
