I finished reading Declare by Tim Powers a couple of days ago. It is a meaty novel, long, a slow read for me, but one I could not walk away from. At first it seems to be simply a novel of intrigue, and this it is, quite well. But it adds an element of the supernatural, and does it so well that it does not feel like a fantasy novel, or anything of the sort. It becomes believable. I found myself thinking, Maybe that could really be what happened. It could even be considered a Catholic novel. I recommend it highly.
