Our furs had earned an excellent profit, even more than I had estimated. I could have afforded more fighting men than the hundred I was mustering and the five hundred Francolin was sending. Below me, Snipe occupied the table with his back to the fireplace, weighing silver nuggets on a scale and slipping them into cloth bags. He placed the small weights on the plate, paused, then his pen scratched as he recorded the values.

Steph Swainston's much-anticipated return to her uniquely imagined fantasy world of the Fourlands. A dramatic and compelling plot, plus inventive and convincing descriptions, elevate this above the common run of contemporary fantasy fiction

Steph Swainston's much-anticipated return to her uniquely imagined fantasy world of the Fourlands. Fifteen years after the last devastating Insect attack, the immortal Circle is finally ready to launch an offensive against their implacable enemies. This time they have a new weapon - gunpowder. A dramatic and compelling plot, plus inventive and convincing descriptions, elevate this above the common run of contemporary fantasy fiction.

This is the book Steph Swainston's fans have been waiting for. A prequel to the Castle novels. ABOVE THE SNOWLINE tells the story of Jant's early years in the Circle and shows the Fourlands as you've never seen them before. This is Jant Shira's life before the drugs took over, as a hunter in the mountains.

So my impression that Above the Snowline is a tad below par remains firm, but has also whetted my appetite for where Steph will take us next in the Fourlands

So my impression that Above the Snowline is a tad below par remains firm, but has also whetted my appetite for where Steph will take us next in the Fourlands. With such a rich and vibrant; gritty and challenging world, full of plenty of complex immortals and mortals alike I think there's so much more to come and would still recommend her as one of the finest reads out there today.

Above the Snowline book. So this book is a slightly different virw of Steph Swainston's world, without the drug induced alternative universe, or the giant insects. Turns out I really missed them

Above the Snowline book. Turns out I really missed them. Without that, this one is a bit generic.

Above the Snowline tells the story of Jant’s early years in the Circle – before the drugs took over – and shows the Fourlands as. .Swainston’s third novel is an impressive illustration of how fantasy does not have to be imitation Tolkien. Swainston writes with dash and elegance.

Above the Snowline tells the story of Jant’s early years in the Circle – before the drugs took over – and shows the Fourlands as you’ve never seen them before. Swainston writes beautiful prose, flowing and elegant, with clever description and mastery of all technical aspects; she is clearly the kind of talent who could waltz into pretty much any genre she set her mind to.

Here is the story of Jant Shira's life before the drugs took over, as a hunter in the mountains. Awian exiles are building a stronghold in the Darkling mountains, where the Rhydanne hunt. Their clash of interests soon leads to bloodshed and Shira Dellin, a Rhydanne huntress, appeals to the immortal Circle for justice. The Emperor sends Jant—half-Rhydanne, half-Awian, and all confidence—to mediate. As Jant is drawn into the spiraling violence he is shaken into coming to terms with his own heritage, and with his feelings for the alien, intoxicating Dellin. This story of Jant's early years in the Circle shows the Fourlands as readers have never seen them before.
