February Books 19) Humility Garden

19) Humility Garden, by Felicity Savage

I can't remember who recommended this to me or how; for a first novel, published when the author was only 20, it's pretty impressive, a portrayal of a viciously political city with interlocking dynamics of sex, species and death. It isn't as good, though, as Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel books which have a very similar setting, and although it ends with a massive cliff-hanger I am not in a huge rush to track down the sequel.
