Adam Browne's debut novel is a wonderful reading experience. It is filled with rich, luscious prose--words to be savored, not consumed. It is a story of Cyrano de Bergerac's journey while rescuing his love Roxanne from the evil Master of Secrets. It is filled with impossible, colorful characters and scenery, the likes of which I've only encountered in a handful of movies: The Adventures of Baron Munchausen comes immediately to mind. Lantern-headed martians, houses made of birds, a trip across the ocean of time, and a villain attired as a billiard table--these are just a few of the impossibilities brought to life in this strange journey.

I am, unfortunately, unfamiliar with Cyrano de Bergerac's work, but I still found this tale engaging and delightful. Browne is to be commended for his adept use of language and his creative, tight story telling. ( )
