all the potentially great things about this book The problem is that with rare exceptions the potential was never realized BRIEF SYNOPSIS The story concerns a young shadow puppeteer Leodora who travels the world of Shadowbridge performing stories for audiences based on the myths and legends of the world Shadowbridge itself is a huge series of bridges each span individually named and having a different culture THE GOODGregory Frost is a good writer His prose is elegant and descriptive In addition the world of Shadowbridge has the potential to be one of those memorable creations like Jack Vance s Dying Earth or Gene Wolfe s world from the Book of the Long Sun Finally myths and legends when told in the book ie the stories within the story are mostly excellent and very well done THE BADMuch of what is bad in the book is directly a result of what I think was a mishandling of what is good First the world of Shadowbridge is only hinted at and hardly described or explored at all Beyond a few enticing comments there is no back story info dumps or explorations of this incredible creation of a world made up entirely of bridges Second the stories within the story are far to few and FAR to long in between After the first 30 pages in which there are two myth stories and I thought the book was going to be great there is an 80 page flashback to Leodora s childhood that is DRY BORING AND COMPLETELY STALLS THE PLOT After a brief advancing of the main plot there is YET ANOTHER FLASHBACK this one focusing on the other main character a god touched musician named Diverus This flashback is shorter and interesting but still leaves you feeling like the plot is meandering and getting nowhere Now I have not read the seueal Lord Tophet A Shadowbridge Novel which I understand really should have been combined with this novel to make one complete story Given the uality of Frost s writing and the promise of the world he has created I will certainly read the seuel and hope
