Kirstein, Rosemary - The Language of Power
And yay for more mechanical things and computers and science and everything! I particularly enjoyed the latter half of the book. Basically, I liked everything once Will reappeared and there were more explanations of wizardry and looks at the inside world of the wizards. However, I completely did not catch the whole "Krue" equating "crew" thing until I had read some other people's reviews. Duh, me. I also find it interesting that most of the wizards probably don't understand their own technology either, and I wonder how that knowledge was lost. I'm actually hoping that the next book will be set within the wizard world, or something like that.
This is, alas, a not very deep review. Mostly I'm just glad I got my greedy little paws on the book so I could read it. Yay interlibrary loans.
