Glenda Larke is definitely in my top 5 authors... Everything she has written is highly original and entertaining, and this series is no exception! The storyline is great, and the way in which it is told is quite unique in the sense that it focuses more on the human experience in the story rather than the events they inspire. "Mirage Makers" isn't available in the US, but I highly recommend her other novels! If you like this author, you might also like "Assassin's Apprentice" by Robin Hobb, "Kushiel's Dart" by Jacqueline Carey, and "A Shadow in Summer" by Daniel Abraham.

I finished it just this morning and I loved it. It kept me guessing right up until the end. For once, I had absolutely no idea how it was going to end and that was great.There were also so many moments where I thought "No! That can't happen!" It was heart-wrenchingly brilliant.Glenda has really outdone herself with this one.

The Shadow of Tyr is the second novel in Glenda Larke's Mirage Makers trilogy. Just like the first one, it is great! The story of a woman wronged (which seems kind of like a pattern in her early works) continues as she finds herself fighting the the system that had created her. Tyr is reminiscent of the Romans, with their vast empire, vassal states, and even a capitol city which they view as the center of the world. Also like Rome, it is starting to crack under it's vast bureaucracy. It's last conquest is ripe for rebellion. The former rulers, with their magic concubans, might just have the power to bring Tyr to it's knees
