The Court of Lightning

The Court of Lightning - Amy Rae Durreson Remarkably polished, even more so since the story fits the prompt so beautifully. I loved Durreson's contribution to last year's event, [b:The Lodestar of Ys|18372675|The Lodestar of Ys|Amy Rae Durreson|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1377414239s/18372675.jpg|25983986], but this story is a definite step above in the sheer grace and sophistication of the world-building. No gratuitous info-dumps here, the writing, characterization and plotting are confident and accomplished. The end seems to promise a sequel--I can't wait.
