Blue and Gold

Blue and Gold - K.J. Parker This was a very good novella. Parker's writing style is very good and entertaining. I got more quotes out of those 60 pages than I usually get out of whole huge novels. The main character, the unreliable first-person narrator, is quite interesting. Even though often done by many authors, Parker gives a fresh take on that style of narration. The plot is complex with lots of twists and surprises but it felt a bit fragmented at times. All in all, I recommend this novella and I definitely intend to continue reading Parker's other works.
