Fantasy. Fiction. Science Fiction. How do you find someone? How, if you have never seen him, never heard him described, did not know where he lived? How, if he wished not to be found? And how, most especially, if he were the most powerful wizard in the world? The steerswoman Rowan has discovered that the fall of the Guidestar and the massacre of Outskirter tribes were caused by one man: the secret master-wizard, Slado. But until now, no steerswoman had known of his existence, nor knew that the wizards answered to any single authority. Now, Rowan must find him. She comes to the seaside town of Alemeth, where centuries of records might help her find clues for her search. Then, an unexpected encounter with a lost friend: Janus, a steersman who had resigned his membership in the Steerswomen, giving no explanation. Now Rowan has hope for help in her search ?? but Janus has changed. The bright intellect is now shrouded in a dark, shattered spirit...Then death comes to sleepy Alemeth, monsters from the Outskirts, and Rowan can not help but wonder: are all these strange events connect… (mais)

This series is getting even better as I read more. I'm starting to dread finishing book four since the status of the next books seem to be a mystery ( )

This is my favorite book in the Steerswoman series so far. 4 1/2 stars
Very much ahead of it's time, published a year before facebook, 3 years before twitter is even founded. We already see a description of fake news.


See, one by one, none of them's smart as a Steerswoman; but if you put them all together, then the really stupid ideas sort of fall out the bottom, and the ideas that make sense sort of clump in the middle where everyone can look at ’em. So, the wrong thing would have to look like the right thing to most of the people doing the looking, and it can’t, because it’s the wrong thing. So, they wouldn’t. Run you out of town. Unless more things happened to make the wrong thing look right. To most of the people. Or if the people with the stupid ideas made a lot of noise and kept putting the stupid ideas back at the top, ’cause it takes a while for them to fall out the bottom— it doesn’t happen straight off,



She was sorry, and frightened at herself. She was used to danger, and she thought she’d seen it


At this point in the story I'd thought that Rowan had PTSD, after she almost attacked the disguised children.



The world is as it is, Rowan, and there are three ways to exist gladly in it: You can be ignorant, knowing nothing of its nature; you can be stupid, and know of it but never truly understand; . . . or you can be brave.


By the time you get to the end of the book, you of course know that Rowan has chosen bravery just as she had in the first two books but at a much higher cost. The trip away from the demons was horrific.


I so glad SFBC decided to read BK1, I'm off to start book 4.

This is a hard, sometimes painful, and sometimes disgusting book to read, but also heartwrenchingly beautiful. The best of science fiction. Highly recommended. ( )

Anytime an author starts describing a species with plot relevant characteristics that has no human-world analog it's easy to get lost in the details. Happened in Rama, happened in The Amber Spyglass (a book that should not exist), and it happened here. Coasts to a solid three stars due to the strength of the surrounding narrative. ( )
