Fingers from Villers, France
The Long Sun series was very difficult to read for me, more so than the Strange Sun series. I mean that in a good thing. There are a number of characters from the first fifty-fifty of this series that you will see develop as they are called to strange tests and destinies. I especially love the journey of Maytera Marble, from a humble relative, to a general in war and project. Auk is another fun transfiguration. The he who taught Silk to burglar becomes a prophet in his own right, and the hand of a blind god. After all the time I invested in the book, I did not feel satisfied as I finished the last few units. Not like I had when I finished the first fifty-fifty of the series, Litany of the Long Sun. Perhaps I need to read the next set ups in this cock-and-bull story to fully appreciate this ending, but I really thought it could have been stronger from one of the worlds greatest writers.
