I started with low expectations about this book. While I love science fiction, I’m finicky about my fantasy. If anything takes me out of the story’s world, it ruins the book for me. But I didn’t need to worry. The Spear Cuts Through Water is excellent! A completely different take on fantasy fiction that will have you regret coming to the end of this 544-page book.
Just like the author’s first book, The Vanished Birds, elevated science fiction, this book does the same to fantasy. It’s best to know nothing of the plot of The Spear Cuts Through Water going in. Don’t miss this creative and innovative tale. 5 stars and a favorite!
Thanks to Del Rey and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
