Anthony Huso, Tor, $27.99 (432p) ISBN 978-0-7653-2516-7
Huso's strong debut opens with a typical scene of a student in a medieval university, but the book quickly deviates from the norm. Caliph Howl, reluctant heir to a kingdom, is bent on petty vengeance against another student who embarrassed him years ago. Sena, a talented witch with her own agenda, discovers his master prank and the two seduce each other for their mutual advantage. As they move into their post-graduation lives, their world is revealed to be neither simple nor stereotypical. Howl's homeland is at the brink of civil war, while Sena's activities on behalf of her sisterhood may lead to the destruction of the world or the man she loves. Huso adroitly mixes technology and fantasy elements in a twisty story that will appeal to fans of thorough world-building and sneaky surprises. (Aug.)
