This book reminded me of a book of fables from somewhere far away. The characters come and go throughout the stories. There is no specific time order which may add a little confusion for some reader who are used to a linear format. I was not really a fan of this book but I could easily see how others may be. ( )

Just couldn't get into it. Seems like a gorgeous and significant fantasy for those who do love such, but not for me.

A gorgeous, lush, exotic cycle of 14 short stories, beginning and ending with the city of Aramantea: In "Amarantea" Grandmother tells her grandchildren about this ruined city and in "The Story of Time" we see what exactly happened to it and to the Compass Rose. The other stories do not follow chronologically in a straight line, but we do meet recurring characters. We read of a vast desert; an unsinkable ship and her woman captain, Lero; death and the thief who stole her "shimmering" scythe; the Lord of Illusion, trapped in the body of a translucent horse; a girl who becomes a spring of water, a never-empty cup, a city of gold. In "The City of No-Sleep" only an assassination of its ruler will stop the city from changing each day. This happens each night while the mad king sleeps, so the inhabitants try to keep awake too.

There are villains but some figures arouse our sympathy: Nadir, the black man, Lirheas, the somber prince, Yaro, the servant girl, and "the queen with no eyes", builder of the Compass Rose. All the stories are oneiric and surreal. They have an Oriental flavor.

I feel this collection is destined to be a fantasy classic someday. Most highly recommended. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Members giveaway.

Lush, lyrical (at the beginning almost overly so, and partly the reason why I waited so long to pick the book, waiting for the right mood), sometime cruel interlinked tales set in a world reminiscent of Tanith Lee's Flat Earth, or some a-historical Middle East of the Thousand and One Nights.

There are several recurring characters, whose successive stories progressively define the world of the Compass Rose and the events that shaped the most central one, the mortal then goddess Ris, whose ascension and interactions with a few mortals closest to her frame those fascinating fragments. ( )
