Mockingbird by Sean Stewart - book cover, description, publication history.
Sean Stewart has produced yet another great fantasy novel that differs from his others in the same way Nobody's Sun was different from Resurrection Man.

A book hacks into you; it uses your own brain to draw the settings and voice the characters. It’s a virus, man. A great book isn’t something you watch – it’s something you come down with, like yellow fever, and sometimes you’re never the same again
