One of My Favorite Worlds

Mixing alchemy, geomancy science, math, mystery, mythology and dystopian socio-economic themes, and read by the ever smooth Emily Woo Zeller, this is one of my favorite worlds. The characters are well developed, and the heroine of the story is both admirable and believably flawed. The plot is well thought out, we follow Aiah on her attempt to solve the mystery of a seeming large source of plasm, while navigating the pitfalls of politics, personal finances, upper management and dealing with the larger than life Constantine.

This is really unique World building by Walter Jon Williams, and I'm glad the book is now available on Audible, and such a well crafted audio production.
