I don't think I'd ever found a book with a character that I can identify as being on the autism spectrum.
John Gwynne's A Time of Dread has got Drem, and he's just so well written, I love reading his chapters!

The cover is quite pretty, unfortunately for me the book didn't quite live up to its packaging and it became a DNF.
I will expand your TBR pile.

FYI, if anyone in the UK wants to buy Aliette de Bodard's In the Vanishers' Palace, you can now get it with free delivery!
It was at £9.99, just 1 penny short of the free delivery, so I asked her if she could change the price and make it £10: this way she gets an extra p and we save £2.98 in delivery costs, hehe

(yes, you could add another book, but I didn't want to buy another one from them....)
