To mark the fact that my copies of the Pyr edition of Elfsorrow have just arrived (and boy, is it a beautiful looking book, the first with the stunning artwork of Raymond Swanland) here is a luvverly review to whet your apetites:
Elfsorrow (Legends of the Raven 1)
“LOTR fans take note! James Barclay’s newest addition…has all you could possibly want in a tantalizing epic adventure…Mr. Barclay’s characterization is above the norm, with countless different peoples and races, heroes and bad guys that will all remain in the reader’s mind for a long time after. And his creative, technical magic is part fantasy, part Sci-Fi mix, bringing his world-rules to vivid life. If you’re looking for a unique, hard action, deeply plotted Sci-Fi/Fantasy epic then you owe it to yourself to read the first in this new series. You will cheer right along with the Raven heroes, find yourself caught up in the battles, and not want to put the book down until you’re finished!”
