あらすじ・解説

The World Fantasy Award-winning author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August presents a mesmerizing tale of a gambling house whose deadly games of chance and skill control the fate of empires.

Everyone has heard of the Gameshouse. But few know all its secrets....

It is the place where fortunes can be made and lost through chess, backgammon - every game under the sun. 

But those whom fortune favors may be invited to compete in the higher league...a league where the games played are of politics and empires, of economics and kings. It is a league where Capture the Castle involves real castles, where hide and seek takes place on the scale of a continent. 

Among those worthy of competing in the higher league, three unusually talented contestants play for the highest stakes of all....

PLAYERS, PIECES, PAWNS DON'T MATTER. IT'S THE GAME

I marvel of the story-telling artistry of Claire North (and Kate Griffin). There are few books I want to read (or listen to) twice, or more. This is one. She transcends the human perspective without descending into philosophic cliches or religiosity. She is truly a Master of The Game. I will not wait to read another of her books! Peter Kenny creates the spoken voices, accents and theatrical performance the writing deserves. Combined, they have created an audiobook masterwork. Bravo!

It kept me listening, but...

...in the end, I felt like it was a waste of time. Not sure why it's listed in the SF section; there's no science whatsoever in these stories. Peter Kenny is great as always.

The best boom I've listened to all year.

I purchased this book because I love Peter Kenny's narration. The story itself is one I couldn't wait to continue listening to.
