McKenna continues to amaze with her worldbuilding. In Book One of the Aldabreshin Compass she posits a society that rejects magic as an unacceptable interference with the natural order, unlike the mainlanders just to the north, who embrace magic and use it as a natural resource. The contrast is instructive to the hero, a local warlord. When faced with an incursion by apparently insane strangers who associate with dragons, he must find a way to save his realm, balance his disgust of magic, overcome a whole variety of obstacles, and, of course, get the woman. McKenna is an author with legs.

I really did want to really love this rather than just like it because Juliet E McKenna is a great speaker and an interesting person. It took me quite a while to get into this and found the story interesting. In a country where magic is punished and magic users killed they suddenly find that they need magic to defeat a powerful other culture that is using magic. The leader of the country has to explore magic to see about defeating the enemies of his countries. Among the problems he has is that he feels that he's putting his soul and his connection with his gods in danger.Interesting but just not me.
