Publishers Weekly Review of Winds

By  |  4 Comments

Close on the heels of the first market review of Winds comes the second, this one from Publishers Weekly. Here's a brief excerpt from the full review:

Debut novelist Beaulieu paints a detailed and realistic portrayal of individual fates bound up in social responsibilities as well-grounded cultures clash… The prose is often poetic—airborne skiffs under attack "dropped like kingfishers" and "twisted in the air like maple seeds"—and the characters have welcome depth.

Again, still very new to these, but this feels like a great review.

    Whenever PW doesn't trash you, it's a good review. Too bad you couldn't pull an inside job and get them to gush.

    Yep, what Paul said.  For PW, this is practically swooning–congratulations!

      Thanks, guys. I think it was a rather positive review. They didn’t gush, true, but they seem to tell things pretty straight, so I’m quite proud of it.
