Armistice returns to Donnelly's ravishing 1930s Art Deco-tinged fantasy world of the Nebula and Lambda Award-nominated Amberlough with a decadent, tumultuous mixture of sex, politics, and spies "A hefty novel full of fascinating characters exploring oversized topics such as sexuality, music, culture, fascism, nationalism, class wars, revolution and love." --Shelf Awareness In a tropical country where shadowy political affairs lurk behind the scenes of its glamorous film industry, three people maneuver inside a high stakes game of statecraft and espionage: Lillian, a reluctant diplomat serving a fascist nation, Aristide, an expatriate film director running from lost love and a criminal past, --and Cordelia, a former cabaret stripper turned legendary revolutionary. Each one harbors dangerous knowledge that can upturn a nation. When their fates collide, machinations are put into play, unexpected alliances are built, and long-held secrets are exposed. Everything is barreling towards an international revolt...and only the wiliest ones will be prepared for what comes next. For Amberlough: "James Bond by way of Oscar Wilde."--Holly Black "Astonishing!" --World Fantasy Award-winning author Ellen Kushner "Beautiful, all too real, and full of pain. Read it. It will change you." --Hugo Award-winning author Mary Robinette Kowal… (mere)

I wanted my high expectations to pan out for this one, but I was a little disappointed.

It's not a bad book by any definition, but it kinda picks up with the same characters under wildly different circumstances. From stage performance and spywork and blowing up the art district to becoming a revolutionary grunt or rubbing nobs with diplomats years down the line.

It might have been rather cool. In concept, it might even work. But in this particular instance, the enjoyment I had with the previous novel went down the drain for a pretty long stretch until the new/old characters came back to life... figuratively and literally.

Spies, bombers, and angling for a full civil war did manage to keep this from being unentertaining. The writing has a lot of quite cool moments and the end makes up for much of the meh. It's occupation Europe in a lite-fantasy setting, after all. We've all seen a lot of this in literature and movies, and this one doesn't even have any fantastical elements. Just the names have changed.

I can't say it's at all bad, but it isn't wonderful. The one thing it has going for it is the LGBT elements. ( )

This was wonderful. I enjoyed it even more than the first one, the vivid and fragile characters, the twists of their secrets, the inexorable coil of their motivations, the way they tangle and chafe. It's so perfectly poised for so much of it that the spate of things-getting-done at the end is almost a shock, but also utterly satisfying.

And oh, Lillian DePaul. MY GOSH I LOVE HER. ( )

3 and a half stars. great world, and i loved the first book in the series, but this second outing was not as good. what felt like a whole lot of exposition largely wrapped up the plotlines of Book 1, but could more usefully have been edited down and attached to that book. and although a lot of new characters and a whole new country were introduced, not much attention was paid to developing them. sophomore writing problems, maybe? it felt rushed, forced rather than organic, and sketchy. still worth following, but hopefully Book 3 will attach itself to firmer ground, which this one finally finds in the more introspective last third of the narrative.

What he needed to do from now on, if there was going to be a now on, was abandon his morbid quest for order and treat himself to a little chaos, on the grounds that while order was demonstrably no substitute for happiness, chaos might open the way to it.

“Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
