So many critics are known for how they tear people down, but here, the reviews are charmingly upbeat and gushing enthusiasm. I can see people really wanting to read the book after such a review. It's great to see so much positivity. Well done!(less)

Brilliantly written, very detailed, it’s a very engaging exploration of the battle between the genders. Lots to make you think.

The writing is bad. Right from the start. The mountain peaks are the colour of fading bruises. In winter. While it’s snowing. Shouldn’t they be white? A young man is staked through the heart, a sign of Dracula. No, Vlad the impaler impaled people, he ...more

“I think it's a shame that something as creative and vital to the nature of the human species as story-telling is largely controlled by the soulless cretins known as publishers.”
Piers Anthony

“Being terrified but going ahead and doing what must be done—that's courage. The one who feels no fear is a fool, and the one who lets fear rule him is a coward.”
