This novel is set in a future that is trapped in the past so there’s extrapolated technologies as well as frilly dresses and drama at court. The prison makes a deliciously dark and formidable opponent for our intrepid protagonists to face and a great dystopian setting. The characters are very well developed with unique voices.There's plenty of meaty bits to ponder as well as fast-paced action scenes.
