Amazing Stories calls Flames “The capstone of a landmark series”
Another review of The Flames of Shadam Khoreh has come in, this one from Keith West at Amazing Stories. It’s a pretty spoiler-free review and is very complimentary of the entire series. Here’s the kicker:
The Flames of Shadam Khoreh is the capstone of a landmark series full of intrigue, swashbuckling, betrayal, sacrifice, and love.
But there are other great parts of the review, like this one:
These are dark books, but they aren’t nihilistic. Throughout the trilogy there’s a sense of hope. Nikandr, Atiana, and their companions refuse to give in to despair, even though there’s plenty to despair about.
That paragraph is especially gratifying, as that’s the tone I was shooting for over the entire series. It’s nice to see that it came across that way: dire but hopeful.

A reminder: The Kickstarter for The Flames of Shadam Khoreh, which includes rewards for limited edition hardcovers of The Lays of Anuskaya series, runs until April 11th.
