Ironic that I haven't written a review. This was my first Voinov book and first MM story--what a gateway! I discussed this thoroughly during a BOM reading and now I find it near impossible to review other than to say that this book single-handedly introduced me to a new genre.The writing is tight, the descriptions elegant and the pace is fiercely regulated. Simply lovely. I'll try and review this again after a rereading, but this is the best I have right now.
