Flesh and Spirit


Click for Goodreads

Secret cabals, end times, magical class systems, a nice rogue-with-a-heart-of-gold for a protagonist: what’s not to love.

Berg in “Flesh and Spirit” grabs a few of the great tools of writing (a character whose traits are hopelessly mismatched to their situation, looming catastrophe, etc.), and puts together a solid and engaging novel. But I’ll be honest: what I really liked was the cabal, and when it fell apart near the end of the book I lost interest.

That’s the danger in a book full of disparate and interesting plotlines. They intersect well, but what happens when the plots you like wrap up?
