This is an engaging first installment from a new author.
Recommended for readers who like their fantasy with a touch of heroism, fantasy and brutal magic action.
The story flows effortlessly with strong characterization and authorial voice.
Cooper's first novel begins as a coming of age tale but develops into the saga of a world in peril and the few people who can serve as its protectors . . . In scope, this has the potential to rival George R R Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire.
The absorbing narrative and sheer quality of the production will keep readers impatiently awaiting the next installment.
Cooper has proven herself yet again to be an author worth spending time with.
…you can settle down and enjoy Cooper’s eloquent prose, unique versions of the occult, and fine emotional range.
Fans of Karen Miller, Emily Gee and Patrick Rothfuss will all welcome Ms Cooper to their shelves.
Cooper demonstrates a refined ear, crafting her tale to its explosive climax with fluency and flair.
I was completely hooked by both the story and the writing style.
