In a stylized turn away from her usual form, New York Times bestseller Ann Leckie gives us an impressive venture into the world of LGBTQ fantasy with her fifth novel The Raven Tower.
A welcomed and original take on the fantasy genre as a whole, The Raven Tower immerses the reader in a world of ancient gods and their battles for power and the significance of spoken language. Told in interweaving segments presented from both first and second perspectives, Leckie tells the tale of The Strength and Patience of the Hill, a large sphere of black stone, a God ancient as the earth.
