Reviews

An exceptional debut outing which fantasy fans should really know about.
James Tivendale – Fantasy Book Review

Classic epic fantasy that young fans will love!
M. Wanchoo – Fantasy Book Critic

This book took me places – places of danger and bravery and mystery. The author’s voice is intriguing – at times, cold as evil; at times, lyric as an angel. All-round excellent read.
Alexander M Zoltai – author of Notes from an Alien

Wow! Excellent Fantasy with Real People, Vivid Setting, Fast Plot, Plenty of Emotion and Style. Highly Recommend.
Kathy – More Books Than Time

…most definitely entertaining and magical reading.

Why Fantasy Swords belong in Fantasy (not elsewhere)

Fantasy swords look cool, but are they any good?

Fantasy with Historical European Martial Arts | Tim Eveland

Mega swords, super swords and all other kinds of made-up dragon-slaying swords belong where they rightly exist–in fantasy! But why do they belong there, and not in real life? In Earth’s historical reality, the European one-handed arming sword has become a well-known and predictable symbol. But in popular medieval fantasy, whether it be in video games, books, movies or comics, the European sword has become a target for unpredictable creative reinvention!
