“This is a tale I have heard,” - a tale told to you, both the reader and protagonist, by a god as they watch it unfold. The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie is unlike any novel I have ever read. This story is told in second person by a character who is somehow both directly involved and entirely above the events they are recounting. It is a tale of gods and politics and stories and words, and I honestly cannot remember the last time I have been so enraptured by a new world.
