“The races and characters a fresh but familiar enough, and your world-building is amazing and deep. I personally love your prose and storytelling style… I wouldn’t change the way you choose your words and construct your sentences at all. I was wide-eyed-jealous much of the way through.” ~ Dyrk Ashton, author of Paternus.
“You’ve got a huge world here, and a great start on unveiling it for your readers. ” ~ James Downe, author of the Legacy of Ash series.
“I read books sometimes for worldbuilding and battles alone, and this has both in excellence… This book has the markings of a true masterpiece.” ~ Michael Baker, author of The Thousand Scars.
“The book grows to be its own thing, and the ending quickly ramps up the plot, and delivers a few surprising developments, where things get proper dark, in the vein of A Song of Ice and Fire, or The Kingdoms of Thorn and Bone. There’s also a few revelation moments, which is what’s most reminiscent of Malazan, and the ending promises much, much bigger scope to things to come in the remaining books.” ~ Amazon review, Pavlo Tverdokhlib
“For anyone who is a fan of gritty high fantasy this should be right up your alley.” ~ Amazon review, James Lewis.
