Leviathan's Blood is one of the most unique and enthralling epic fantasies that I have read in recent years. Peek's vision and execution are wonderful, and his deft and creative touch with this series a joy to behold. If Peek continues to write to this standard he will go down in history as a master of the genre * Smash Dragons *
I'm not overstating things when I say that Ben Peek is one of the most accomplished writers of richly detailed and intricately plotted epic fantasy working in Australia today * Newton Review of Books *
[Peek's] mixture of adventure, politics, myth and ancient legend is completely immersive, totally absorbing and unashamedly 5* stuff * The Book Bag *
