I'm officially a Touraine's arms stan. Apart from that, this is a fantastic and nuance examination of empire through the lense of the colonised and coloniser and a damn good story as well. Told simply with rich characters and richer relationships - this books a knockout. Bit slow so if that isn't your thing definitely one I wouldn't jump to straight away but if you like slow and thoughtful reveals and development and you haven't read this yet?? Where have you been?
