Sun's End, by Richard Lupoff; Berkley Books, 1984. Ends without any resolution of anything; very annoying. Contra-recommended.
The Magic of Recluce, by L.E. Modesitt, Jr; Tor, 1991. Interesting magic and social systems. Recommended.
The Queen's Man, by Sharon Kay Penman; Henry Holt and Company, 1996. A very good historical mystery.
