‘In the Even — a city built in the intersection between the real and the not –ruled by the iron whim of the demon Yekum where treachery brewed amidst the ever-changing streets. Ancients dwell in the city who have out-lived their purpose and grown jaded with their immortality. They want only to die and they will take the whole world with them if they have to: suicide by Apocalypse.
Only Faceless Lenith, goddess, cynic and gambler, stands in their way. The fate of the world rests on her shoulders and mankind did not conceive her to be wise.’
The Even is a must for all fantasy readers. Wonderfully twisted and dark, this will appeal to Neil Gaiman fans.
