Review of Silver on the Road by Laura Anne Gilman
It is always a joy to find a new book with a well thought out fantasy world, one with its own internal history, mythos, and ecosystems. Add in complex characters with both open and hidden motivations, interesting beings drawn from the legends of numerous cultures but with a twist or two, the fun of learning about the world with the main character as part of her unique coming of age story, and, of course, danger, mystery, and puzzles to be solved, and you have one helluva fun story.
Set in a unique version of the Old West, follow Isobel along the path to discovery.
Excellent. Wonderful. Fabulous. (I could keep going.)
