The Wyvern and the Wolf
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING
We gave a bunch of fantasy buffs and book lovers advance copies of The Wyvern and the Wolf to see what they thought. Here's just some of the actual reviews that came back...
“Unputdownable. Leaves you breathless for more…”
“The writing is world class. Evocative, imaginative, thought-provoking. I loved the emotional, political and philosophical elements to it. The book was very powerful. Tragic, even.”
“A tour de force in high fantasy and world-building…”
“Steampunk meets sci-fi samurai. Imagine SHŌGUN crossed with GAME OF THRONES, but with ninja, evil priests, monsters, intrigue, tragedy, vengeance, high action, and more thrown into the mix...”
“Brutal yet beautiful. A richly imagined world with deeply flawed heroes and villains you almost feel sorry for. Thrilling. The ending left me with my heart in my mouth…”
“Extraordinary. Original. You’re pulled right in. Think George R.R. Martin meets Cormac McCarthy. An immersive and highly moving tale of conspiracy, adventure, betrayal, survival, cruelty, love and loss.”
"An incredible piece of writing and a beautifully constructed page-turner. In this epic and imaginative tale, there’s unexpected twists aplenty, characters to love, and even more to hate. I was emotionally invested..."
“Beautifully written. It’s a far step up from a lot of fantasy fiction and the story is gripping. Full of cliffhangers that left me wanting more.”
“The descriptions are vivid but never at the expense of pacing; the word choice and phrasing is colourful, but never in a way that feels contrived. The reader is seldom conscious of the fact they are reading. The style just feels very authentic, unforced and effortless…”
