First a bit of a disclaimer: I've been completely in love with the Deverry series since I first discovered it in seventh grade (way back when it was only about half finished), so my five star rating is probably a bit inflated. It's still the main fantasy series I hold up as an example of my favorite fantasies. I never expected to see more from this universe after the primary series was wrapped up several years back, but I was thrilled to find out that this new book was coming.

I screamed when I found out this was coming out.
The books about Deverry shaped so much of my Fantasy writing today and I felt the same emptiness after finishing the last one (back in 2011) as I felt after I finished the last Harry Potter book. Now February cannot come soon enough.
