Two clashing forces drawn into a sorcerous duel: Nebula Award nominee Laura Anne Gilman spins the riveting conclusion to her “dramatic” (Publishers Weekly) fantasy series of vine, earth, and deceit.

T wo thousand years ago, a demigod split the world between Vinearts and men of power, setting his heirs, the Washers, to guard the balance. But even gods fail, and now the Lands Vin are wracked by rumor, revolt, and inexplicable violence. Vineart Jerzy must track the source, accompanied by the only three people he trusts: a trader crippled by a sea monster, a young woman without a place, and a prince who abandoned his people. They have their enemy’s name, and they know his plan. What they don’t know is how to stop him. And with unrest increasing daily, Jerzy must delve deeper into forbidden magic, luring his unknown enemy into the open. Because in a world where everyone knows their place, only a former slave is free to act. . . .

SF Signal

It’s difficult, as always, to talk about an individual book without giving away spoilers for the entire series, but The Shattered Vine and The Vineart War Trilogy are well worth the risks, and the author’s work is very much worth your attention.

Red Room

Gilman has ended the trilogy with a subtle power that leaves questions about the nature of religion and magic and the truth of Zatim Sin Washer and what really happened to create the Lands Vin and the legacy that comes full circle with Jerzy.
