2013 book 264

Diana Wynne Jones' Deep Secret
Here's another book by Diana Wynne Jones that I entirely missed, new to Kindle! In this one . . . lots of complicated things involving magic and multiple worlds happen. Seriously, I am way too tired to try and explain the plot. The main characters are a magical dude whose job seems to be to help keep order in the worlds, and a young woman who he may decide to train. And most of the action takes place at a speculative fiction convention. The inevitable romance is a nice slow build, there's plenty of action, and even the plot points that are easy to guess aren't unwelcome. Very satisfying, and I'm hoping I can track down the sequel. B+.
