Read book blurb here
Stay with me here ... but reading August Li is like seeing a Cirque du Soleil production. It's mystical and magical and unexpected, but trying to describe it to someone else is really hard.
Colina de Lavanada" features a town created for "whores, thieves, sorcerers, and deviants" where everyone is accepted and all holidays are observed. Li adds a dash of magic and native folklore, a mysterious illness, a love story between Edward and a silver-haired mage Shu and the end result is fascinating ... but darned if I know how to describe it! 4.5 stars.
