Book Review: Midwinter, by Matthew Sturges

To be fair, the first two pages do sing with an echo of Kay’s famous lyricality; the protagonist, Mauritaine, does remind me to an extent of Corwin. But for every lyrical passage, there are nine others that just clunk along; and unlike Zelazny (who must be acknowledged for his skill, even if I’m not a visceral fan), the characters never quite transcend standard tropes.
