Vespertine follows Artemisia, a nun-in-training in a quasi-medieval fantasy world plagued by malevolent spirits. In order to save the convent where she lives, she invites a revenant, the most powerful and deadly type of spirit, to share her body. I was surprised by how much I ended up loving Vespertine. The prose is solid, but the characters and the world are drawn with care and complexity, and the plot keeps you on your toes without be inundated with over-the-top twists. I can't wait for the sequel.
