Prospero Regained

L. Jagi Lamplighter. Tor, $25.99 (480p) ISBN 978-0-7653-1931-9
Lamplighter wraps up her Prospero's Daughter trilogy (after 2010's Prospero in Hell) with a satisfyingly epic combination of mythology, theology, and Shakespeare. Prospero's children, estranged and scattered throughout the circles of Hell, must overcome centuries of distrust and neglect to rescue their father before he's executed. Unfortunately, someone in the family may be a traitor, and Miranda's lost much of her power. As the Family Prospero journey through the underworld, all of their age-old secrets, mysteries, resentments, and failings are finally brought to light. Lamplighter keenly examines the complex, intertwined natures of redemption, forgiveness, and faith as represented by the intricate bonds of love and family, externalizing them through memorable representations of Heaven, Hell, and Faerie. This is intricate, intellectual fantasy at its best—with bonus "invisible beams of unicorn love." (Sept.)
