Tor.com’s take on The Straits of Galahesh
The latest review for The Straits of Galahesh comes from Stefan Raets over at Tor.com. I have to say, I always love it when my work gets compared to other writers (in a favorable way, of course). In this case, it’s Robin Hobb with her Seven Duchies/Rain Wilds series and Steven Erikson’s Malazan Book of the Fallen series. I loved Robin Hobb’s Farseer Trilogy and The Liveship Traders Trilogy, but have yet to dive into the Rain Wilds. And any day you get compared to Steven Erikson is a good day in my book.
Here’s a brief excerpt from the review:
If you’re the kind of reader who enjoys Steven Erikson’s approach of throwing readers into a setting without too much guidance and letting the story do the job of explaining the details as it progresses, you should have a great time getting to know this fantasy universe. While that happens, you’ll be treated to healthy doses of feudal and international politics, strong characters, unique magic, romance, spectacular battles on land and in the air, and a story that continues to broaden in scope. The Lays of Anuskaya is shaping up to be a fine fantasy trilogy.
