"Warring clans, sleeping giants, Banished Lands and omens and portents ... a strong contender for 'if you like Game of Thrones, why not try this?' award."--Independent "John Gwynne hits all the right spots in his epic tale of good vs evil . . . there's a lot of pleasure to be had in this debut novel; Gwynne is definitely one to watch."--SFX "Three-dimensional characters, a gripping plot, and a world that became real to me ... this is the type of fantasy I love to read and I truly can't wait to read the next volume in The Faith and the Fallen!"--Fantasy Book Critic "Middle Earth-ish extravaganza with all the usual thrills, chills, spills and frills ... there's plenty of action."--Kirkus "Influenced by Gemmell's Rigante and George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones ... Hell of a debut."--Conn Iggulden "A series that promises the same degree of complexity and depth found in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time books and George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series."--Library Journal (starred review)
