A brilliant epic fantasy debut from a master storyteller
Wonderful characters and great world-building, in Humphreys' special brand of addictive storytelling
An intriguing premise... an intricate, fast-paced story... Humphreys packs gods, deicide, warring tribes and some impressive world-building into just over 300 pages.
Chris Humphreys skilfully weaves together several different storylines without any feeling like they're rushed over and still manages to keep the momentum of the plot going throughout the book. It's an intriguing new look at immortality in a fantasy novel, and I highly recommend it.
Cleverly written, at times very funny, I thoroughly enjoyed this new book.
Humphreys' plot, prose, and characters give this book a sense of quality and gravity without skimping on fun and readability
Brilliant: smoothly-written, engaging, fascinating. The kid can write. The world is wonderful - I wish I'd thought of it
Instantly gripping and thoroughly unusual, this book ends on a cliffhanger which has me impatient for part two.
