Publisher Description

'Exhilarating... a work of imagination and arresting originality' Sunday Telegraph

The war is ending, perhaps ended...

For the castle and its occupants the troubles are just beginning. Armed gangs roam its lawless land, where each farm and house supports a column of dark smoke. Taking to the roads with the other refugees, anonymous in their raggedness, seems safer than remaining in the ancient keep. But the lieutenant of an outlaw band has other ideas, and the castle becomes the focus for a dangerous game of desire, deceit and death...

Depressing

Possibly the most soul destroying book Banks has ever written - what was going on in his mind when he wrote this I don't think I want to know. Style wise it's his usual good quality, but there is nothing even remotely uplifting or hopeful. I felt truly depressed when I was finished - maximum points for accessing my emotions, but these were some I really didn't want to get in touch with.
