Hat trick

"To keep or to burn?
To burn: anything by Elizabeth Bear."

I'm beginning to see why. Starting with, Blood and Iron is part of the Promethean Cycle but it's not the same part as Hell and Earth or Ink and Steel. Which means 403 dense pages with neither Shakespeare nor Marlowe in them. Should I be reading Gloriana instead? Re-reading Armor of Light? Or just cut to the chase and revisiting Point of Dreams?

Or spend the weekend reading the damned book just to say I did. (The dragon is intriguing. The dragon is a female dragon even if not my kind of female dragon.)
