The Bone Doll's Twin by Lynn Flewelling

The Bone Doll's Twin is the first installment of a fantasy/science fiction trilogy. The appearance of witches and wizards satisfied my desire for a fantastical escape while the tales of battle and kings and queens struggling for power appealed to my love of historical fiction. A royal court in a fantasy land very much resembles a royal court anywhere else :0). The three books in the trilogy bleed right into each other. The second one picks up in almost the same breath as this first one leaves off. You won't reach a satisfactory end by just reading this first one and will have to resign yourself to all three to truly enjoy the tale. This first one was my least favorite of the three. I fell further into the tale with each book. This is not a series written for young adult readers so prepare yourself for the vulgarity and violence of an ancient court fighting age-old battles.
