Best of Mature Fantasy
Iron council was one of the best novels of the fantasy genre that I have ever read. The prose itself is very good and its so refreshing to escape from the Tolkienesque sword and sorcery type storyline. It is very original and epic in its scope. It has elements of the tribal, apocalyptic, western, mystical, grunge -tech thats unlike anything I have read. The imagery is gritty, stark, lush and ultimately dark. There are many levels here the first of which is entertaining page turner then political satire with nods to the anti hero or proletarian heroes rather than the heroes of royal lineage ect. Not for kids and the squeamish this isnt pg-13. If you are a fan of the genre and have become jaded with what you have been reading try this! It will cleanse your palette at the very least. Yes it is better than Perdido Street Station by leaps and bounds. Unputdownable.
