Not really knowing what else to do with my weekend, I finally had the time to pick up Carrie Vaughn‘s Discord’s Apple (Fantasy 299 pages).
I really do enjoy all of Vaughn‘s work. She’s a very talented author, with great characters and fascinating storylines. The scattered mythology all throughout the story was wonderfully done and reminded me of having to translate the Aeneid during my undergraduate Latin days. I remembered Chapter Two as my favorite chapter because that was the fall of Troy, and was vividly described by Virgil. Reading it “unedited” from translation was a very bloody experience that stuck with me for many years.
Overall, this was a great story and I’m glad I finally had the time to read it.
