Don't let that put you off because thankfully that only lasts for a few sentences and Bear's story telling abilities quickly take over.
2012) (The first book in the Eternal Sky series) A novel by Elizabeth Bear.
The characters of Range of Ghosts are subtle and achingly damaged. Temur and Samarkar, the novel’s two main protagonists, are caught in a war forced on them by the circumstance of their birth. Both of royal blood, Samarkar and Temur both struggle with the duty and responsibility of their elevated place in the world in different manners. This is legend brought to life, with all the grandeur associated with creation stories from the various cultures that Bear draws inspiration from.
