Great Book

I almost didn't buy this book because I thought it was a kids/young adult book. I am glad I did. Far from being a child's book this book really delves into some adult/religious themes. I couldn't stop reading it.

A dark medieval fantasy

My son recommended this book to me over the phone, and I purchased it while we were talking. The Left Hand of God takes place in a complex fantasy world that is woven from threads of inspiration from history and literature, spanning the ancient Persian Empire. It was fun to trace out the oblique geographic references as I was reading using Wikipedia and Google Earth.

The prose is spare and fast moving. The characters are drawn concisely and efficiently. But the plot unfolds like a very dark arabesque tale. This was very diverting.

Fantastic read

So, the first few chapters were dark and stark, so much so, that I almost quit reading. Then the whole story seemed to open up with possibilities. Very interesting book, I highly recommend it.
