Brust and White charge on the scene with a great premise: an engaging, cerebral psychological fantasy, with a romance thrown in. Their professorial dialogue and precise narrative successfully build a world that unfortunately loses some magic in the middle with some excessive wordiness, but triumphantly rights itself at the end.
Phil is part of an age-old covert organization, The Incrementalists, whose “meddlework” has essentially shaped our culture by manipulation, all in the name of societal betterment. He thinks he’s found a new recruit, but convincing her to join is the challenge. In Vegas on business, Renée doesn’t know she’s been finessed into being there and about to fall down a rabbit hole filled with danger, secrets and life-altering challenges, one she may never climb out of. (TOR, Oct., 304 pp., $24.99)
