Overview

The Gaslight Dogs by Karin Lowachee

At the edge of the known world, an ancient nomadic tribe faces a new enemy-an Empire fueled by technology and war.

A young spiritwalker of the Aniw and a captain in the Ciracusan army find themselves unexpectedly thrown together. The Aniw girl, taken prisoner from her people, must teach the reluctant soldier a forbidden talent - one that may turn the tide of the war and will surely forever brand him an outcast.

From the rippling curtains of light in an Arctic sky, to the gaslit cobbled streets of the city, war is coming to the frozen north. Two people have a choice that will decide the fates of nations - and may cast them into a darkness that threatens to bring destruction to both their peoples.

I loved it, although it took me a little while to orient myself in this strange world. All right, there are references to different races, the Boots - representing Caucasians, and the Aniw, obviously related to Inuit. Other than that, the world is very strange indeed. But it soon became tangled in my psyche and I found myself being horrified, saddened, frustrated, maddened, and frightened. The writing is beautiful. The author uses words like an artist -- to wit: The rage at the repudiation boiled deep and stinking in the general, some hidden sulfur preparing to shoot forth in his direction. And: In the creeping night the green grass was now black and blue, as though bruised by the feet that had trod upon it all day. Be warned: there is no HEA. Too many dark forces at work for that.

I'm left wondering what happens next - and I'm sure (hopeful) that it will become a series so that I can find out. I enjoyed the book - it was well written - but I wish it had really ended.
