This series just keeps getting better.
Simple review: loved it!!!!
Longer review: One of the things I love about Jordan, as a writer, is her anility to create a very layered world that gets richer as the tales evolve. In Dancer with Death we have:
a) a nasty etheric creature whose darkness is rooted in dance,
b) further hints of another creature in the shadows,
c ) the strengthening of the working relationship of John, Zahira, and Caleb, and
d) Barillo still being an @@@@@.
There's enough angst to please without drawing the reader so far down that discomfort overwhelms tinged with a nice side order of, "If you'd just communicate a whole raft of problems could be avoided." I expect to see some of the detritus from that raft show up in the next books.
One of the things I noticed, and in someways it's a sad thing that it's noticeable, but Jordan gives us, amongst the cast of characters, a transman and a Muslim agent. These things should not stand out but too many writers (Western Authors) still limit their characters to the white, anglosaxon, heteronormative palette with a nod to people of color when in fact contemporay fiction should showcase all of humanity. Maybe in another 20 years this will no longer be a things but in the current world of publishing it still stands out and I love any author who paints with a positive ;light outside the lines.
Add Brad Langer's narration and, well, let's just say Ididn't even bother waiting for my next credit. This Audio was an instant buy.
