The writing is at least as good as I remembered. Now that I am older and have my own little dog, I find the Damiano and his little dog to be even more fascinating. I cried for Damiano as he encountered evil and rejoiced at the simple faith his dog had in him. I found Raphael to be a complexly drawn being. I stopped several times to think about what was written. My favorite quotations are below.
Besides, Damiano, the important questions involve not the intent of God toward us but the soul’s own duty, and you know that clearly, don’t you?
We live our lives bound by our little tasks and possessions and never know how free we could be unless God sees fit to pry us away from them.
To be damned is only not to love.
If you enjoy an alternate history fantasy that includes a heavy dose of Christian background (appropriate for Renaissance Italy), then I think you would enjoy it. Be aware that the Christianity presented is from an alternate history and may not align always with your beliefs. Still the story is quite good and I enjoy philosophical fiction.
MacAvoy has a way of bringing me into every scene, using precise language and memorable detail. If history is fair to fantasy authors, Damiano and his lute and his little talking dog will outlast all of the overblown 'ologies' of Brooks, Goodkind, and Martin.
A marvelous change from so much fantasy that's delving deep into violence, rape, explicit sex, etc.
