Your Next Read: Under Heaven & The Dervish House

Your Next Read is a website that makes reading suggestions based on a title, author or genre.

I put in Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay (amazing, amazing book. So amazing I haven’t found a way to review it yet) and it suggested The Dervish House by Ian McDonald.

I am sitting here and trying to figure out what they have in common.

Under Heaven is a historical fantasy; The Dervish House is science fiction set in the near future. Under Heaven takes place in China; The Dervish House takes place in Istanbul. Under Heaven has a few characters, but one is a central character; The Dervish House has six characters, but I have no idea if any of them could be a central character. (I like central characters, they give me something to focus on.)

They both involve politics, but is that really enough to make them similar enough to recommend?
