In the winter palace, the King's new physician has more enemies than she at first realises. But then she also has more remedies to hand than those who wish her ill can know about. In another palace across the mountains, in the service of the regicidal Protector General, the chief bodyguard, too, has his enemies. But his enemies strike more swiftly, and his means of combating them are more traditional.
Spiralling round a central core of secrecy, deceit, love, and betrayal, Inversions is a spectacular work of science fiction, brilliantly told and wildly imaginative, from an author who has set genre fiction alight.

Fantastic a must buy
Peter Kenny does another fantastic job, varied characters and well read.
One of my favourite Culture books only because its so different.
Weakest of the Culture novels
In essence this may as well not be a culture novel with only very fleeting and indirect references to it. It’s a relatively engaging story, but doesn’t fulfil the space opera desires quenched by the other Culture books.
