ALL THE WINDWRACKED STARS
Bear's latest science fiction novel is a dark, forbidding and fascinating combination of magic and technology. Muire is a strong and somewhat reserved protagonist who struggles with self-doubt, failure and the need to do the right thing. Bear is a graceful storyteller,
and this new book doesn't disappoint.
Two thousand years later, Muire is in the last city where the Thjierry, the Technomancer, rules the final remnants of humanity. Mingan the Wolf is hunting, and it falls to Muire -- and some unexpected allies -- to reclaim the swords of her fallen sisters and brothers and slay the Wolf. (Tor, Nov., 368 pp., $24.95)
