Another one in, this time in Total Sci-Fi Online:
The characters gracing these pages are filled with a bleak sense of determination – whether it’s for love, life, power or all three. Key in instigating this sentiment is the inescapable threat of the coming freeze, a welcome change of tack in a genre that thrives on conflict. A foe that cannot be stopped by sword or magic, this adversary has no face, and adds to the impressive ambience of Newton’s multi-tiered Villjamur…
Written in an offbeat, literary and often uncomfortable style, Newton’s technique serves to compliment the uneasy atmosphere that surrounds the story itself. The world he creates is almost palpable in its reality, demonstrating the author’s skill at generating atmosphere and bringing his setting to life.
I’ve been emailing Alice, the reviewer, on and off, so had hoped she might like it a bit more, but you can’t win ’em all. Still, chuffed with this one.
oooh good review. Yay you.
It’s okay. I’ve had better! (Very competitive nature… 🙂 )
hah, funny, Damien was saying yesterday how competitive writers are. Are you Fantasy Con’ing?
Yeah, just got my registration sorted. Should do a post on that over the weekend actually.
I registered earlier today, umm, not while
I was supposed to be working, obviously. 😉
Just for the saturday, it’ll be my first fantasy convention, i’ve been to plenty of transport ones, expect this to be more fun.
