Patricia A Mckillip is a writer with a rare command of rhythm There s a poetic feel to her work almost like gentle waves lapping away Ombria in Shadow is one of McKillip s adult works The novel showcases McKillip s talents to an extent unseen in her other stories McKillip s world building in Ombria in Shadow has the complexities of the most complicated works relating to thrones and power struggles in literature McKillip has made the city itself into a wondrous character Ombria has the uniue taste of renaissance Italy It is a place layered in history but also Byzantine deceit and deception And there is a city beneath the city like in Gaiman s Neverwhere but this city is inhabited by spirits and accessible only to a few who know its secret ways The story itself is something the Borgias would be envious of The Prince dies suddenly and the power hungry and suitably wicked great aunt Domina Pearl seizes power as the regent The protagonist and the deceased prince s lover Lydea is tossed out into the alleyways Yet an unusual girl called Mag who may even be a waxling product of socrcery saves Lydea from the evil of the streets Lydea unravels truths and mistruths as together she and Mag set to battle Domina and restore justice to Ombria This is a superb novel I ve always loved McKillip but Ombria s renaissance multi layered world has made me admire her even so Highly recommended

Ombria in Shadow

review Ombria in Shadow Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB summary Ombria in Shadow T Domina Pearl seizes power by becoming regent to the prince's young son Kyel Minutes after the prince's death Domina kicks Lydea the prince's longtime mistress out into the streets to die But she is saved by a strange girl named Mag. I love all of McKillip s work as least so far She can really manage enchantment her Ombria is a strange world decaying and bright mysterious and intriguing There s a lot going on here the magic behind Faey and her waxling the magic behind Domina Pearl Ducon s father and Mag s origins And there s characters you can t help but care about Kyel so alone Lydea who loves him Ducon the bastard son with no designs upon the throne who spends his time drawing searching learning the city and seeing it in ways others can t And the details like Lydea s bitten fingernails the charcoal stains Ducon leaves on the bedsheets so everyone knows where he s been sleeping and whenAnd of course the hidden passageways the secrets the two worlds side by sideIt cast its spell very uickly over me McKillip writes beautifully of course and that itself is kind of mesmerisingTowards the ending perhaps the last twenty pages I was less sure of what was going on It might pull itself together on a reread I m not sure but I was left not uite knowing who knew what was happening who understood what why certain things changed and others didn t or if they didn t change but people acted like they had to make things easier I have that feeling with McKillip s work a lot though and it hasn t deterred me from picking up Originally posted here

review Ombria in Shadow Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB summary Ombria in Shadow A supposed waxling created by a powerful sorceress who lives underneath the city With the help of Mag and the prince's bastard nephew a strange silver eyed man obsessed with drawing Lydea tries to save Kyel and somehow defeat Domina. If Patricia McKillip burned down my house while chanting Fenris is the worst Dragon Age character I would still log on to Goodreads dot com and give this book five stars I loved it that much Like all of her books it s a cipher and a dreamscape filled with beautiful imagery a fascinating intricate setting and magic that is truly mystical and transformative I think she has a special knack for writing these wonderful odd young female characters like Luna Peri Saro and Sybel and Mag joins their ranks with her own uniue struggle and transformation My main concern ar this point is that I m all too uickly running out of McKillip books I m not sure if I should space them out to make them last or enjoy them all at once
