While I rarely mention cover art in a review, I feel like the cover art of Blackdog particularly supports the book. It’s artistic, ethereal and mysterious without being over-the-top. It causes potential readers to wonder what it’s all about, setting the perfect tone and attitude before the reader even cracks the spine and Johansen carries that through to the last page. Everything about Blackdog is measured, deep, planned and thought out. An incredible world and wonderful characters are created in this tome, which I woud love the author to expand on in the future. Despite some abrupt character entries and exits and some confusing names, Blackdog is a real gem fans of epic fantasy should check out.

Stefan how is it so far?

Sarah I'm just starting to get into it, so I can't honestly review the story itself so far. However, I can say that Johansen isn't a bad writer and the plot is (so far) really interesting...
