Ben Peek’s debut fantasy novel is a wonderfully woven book, full of surprises and set in an incredibly realistic world. It is not hard to start wanting the protagonists to win and the antagonists to suffer – badly.
The characters inhibit this beautiful world in a way that is not seen much in fantasies anymore; they live and breathe, and you feel for them. The world building is huge, as is the scope of this novel. This is a book to dwell over and be absorbed by.
I am looking forward to the rest of this trilogy, and will be lining up for it. Ben Peek is a new name in Australian fantasy that you will be hearing more from.
