Sprung from a timeless dream, Shadowbridge is a world of linked spans arching high above glittering seas. It is a world of parading ghosts, inscrutable gods, and dangerous magic. Most of all, it is a world of stories. No one knows those stories better than Leodora, a young shadow-puppeteer who travels Shadowbridge collecting the intertwining tales and myths of each place she passes through, then retells them in performances whose genius has begun to attract fame . . . and less welcome attention. For Leodora is fleeing a violent past, as are her two companions: her manager, Soter, an elderly drunkard who also served Ledora' s father, the legendary puppeteer Bardsham; and Diverus, her musical accompanist, a young man who has been blessed, and perhaps cursed, by the touch of a nameless god. Now, as the strands of a destiny she did not choose begin to tighten around her, Leodora is about to cross the most perilous bridge of all--the one leading from the past to the future. Shadowbridge is the first novel in a two-book adventure.

A very interesting book about a young puppeteer and her adventures, and how she came to be.
it is a little jumpy, but I think they do that well. However, it does make it difficult to tell what is happening now, and what had happened in the past.
Very interesting elements to the story, such as the paidika where customers become high on the life of little boys being preyed on by spirits, the added history of the bridges and the world, and little things like the dragons and corral man.
The only negative aspect of this book is that it does not have an ending. The story abruptly cuts off, like the author needed to make a due date for the book, and just published what he had done.
I will however, read the second one when it comes out.
