A touching epic that illustrates the harsh realities of life, as well as the beautiful follies of reality, as a sorceress strives to find happiness despite the destruction that follows her.
Allen masterfully executes how risky magic can be, and that no matter how tempting it may seem, there’s no room for naiveté.
The opening chapters that tell of Iskra’s childhood are beautifully written in a dense literary style. When childhood ends, the prose loosens up and the speed doubles. This is a good thing because extending the opening style throughout the entire novel would have made for a concentrated read, something that may challenge impatient or harried readers.
Susurrus is a stylistic allegory, a commentary on the ills of modern society and therefore an illuminating read for thinking people.
I would compare this to Ursula K Le Guin at her best. Very highly recommended.
