    Starting with Captain Amos January, who quickly loses it, and then the others who fought, schemed, and killed to get it, we travel around the complex, decadent, brawling, mongrelized, interstellar human civilization that the artifact might save or destroy. Collectors want the Dancer, pirates take it, rulers crave it, and all will kill, if necessary, to get it. This is a thrilling yarn of love, revolution, music, and mystery, and it ends, as all great stories do, with shock and a beginning.

    Story

    I quite enjoyed The January Dancer. Michael Flynn weaves a complex story from multiple viewpoints, most seemingly unrelated at first. However, all the threads connect in some way to a strange and ancient alien artifact that comes to dominate the lives of the protagonists.
    Michael Flynn's skill as a writer makes this much more than just good space opera. Recommended for those who like Ian M. Banks's Culture series.

    Twenty-two years after the Second World War, a precarious balance of power maintains the peace between Great Britain and the USSR. For decades, the warlocks have been all that stand between the British Empire and the Soviet Union-- a vast domain stretching from the Pacific Ocean to the shores of the English Channel. But now each death is another blow to Britain's security.

    Story

    The Coldest War is the second of Ian Tregillis's triptych about an alternative history of the Second World War and its aftermath. The first novel mainly covered the period from the Spanish Civil War until the defeat of Nazi Germany. This novel picks up the main characters in the early 1960s, about 20 years after the end of the first book. It is at the height of the cold war.
    Of course it is a cold war unlike the one we knew. How could it be otherwise when Soviet supermen contest with British warlocks? This book provides a lot of suspense and action and some really unusual magic. At the end the world literally hangs in the balance. (Avoiding spoilers -- there is resolution, but all is not resolved.)
    I await the third section of the triptych.
