At the edge of the known world, an ancient nomadic tribe faces a new enemy-an Empire fueled by technology and war.

A young spiritwalker of the Aniw and a captain in the Ciracusan army find themselves unexpectedly thrown together. The Aniw girl, taken prisoner from her people, must teach the reluctant soldier a forbidden talent - one that may turn the tide of the war and will surely forever brand him an outcast.

From the rippling curtains of light in an Arctic sky, to the gaslit cobbled streets of the city, war is coming to the frozen north. Two people have a choice that will decide the fates of nations - and may cast them into a darkness that threatens to bring destruction to both their peoples.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great story As someone who really loved the three SF books by Karin Lowachee, I was really happy to finally have a new book from her. The Gaslight Dogs has a fascinating concept: Some of us are born sharing our bodies with spirits which take dog form when they leave our bodies. Trouble for our heroine begins when she is kidnapped by a ruthless general who thinks the spirits could be turned into weapons in his war. Strangely, although some of the prose borders on sheer poetry, at other times sentences sound like a bad translation. For instance the phrase "above head" is used where we'd normally say, "overheard" .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Creative but misleading Don't let the cover art and description fool you - this book is more about Captain Jarrett than it is about the Aniw Spiritwalker Sjenn. The beginning is somewhat confusing, as it starts off right away, but as you go along the book gets addictive and interesting and you can't put it down. It ends on a note that guarantee a sequel, so if you're looking for a single novel you won't find it here. However, it's well worth the read as it's very creative and interesting.
