2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Glove of Satin, Glove of Bone (215-07-26-2016)

Some gorgeous writing here, together with great chracters. Wish such a combination had been in the service of more plot development--the ending seemed rushed and relationship felt just short of perfectly rendered. But giving top marks overall because it’s a beautifully written novel by an author who values language.

Enne Datchery and Muriel vas Veldina, ex-lovers and witches with a shared apprentice, are tasked by the Citadel to repair an old grimoire together, despite the fact their relationship is tense at best. The situation is further complicated when the book is stolen, and tracking down the thief stirs even more of Muriel's past. It swiftly becomes clear to the two that dealing with their fractured relationship is going to be the easy part of the assignment—if they can live long enough to complete it.
