More About the Author

Tom Lloyd was born in 1979 in Berkshire. After a degree in International Relations he went straight into publishing where he still works. He never received the memo about suitable jobs for writers and consequently has never been a kitchen-hand, hospital porter, pigeon hunter, or secret agent. He lives in Oxford, isn't one of those authors who gives a damn about the history of the font used in his books and only believes in forms of exercise that allow him to hit something.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent well written master piece 17 Oct 2007
Stormcaller was an amazing, well written, breath of fresh air for the fantasy scene, that it was the first book of a new author was remarkable to say the least. This is his second book in the series and The Twightlight Herald proves beyond doubt that Mr Lloyd is a very skilled story teller and an author to be watched with great enthusiasm. This is a very strong second book of which any author could be proud. It grips the reader by the throat and holds you mesmerised and spellbound throughout.

The review "gloom , doom and destruction," makes me wonder if we read the same book. Yes there is a vampire in the book, but not so much as a blood sucking monster type of the horror genres. Here vampirism is kind of incidental, it forms a power base of an individual. It is not a central point to the story although the individual is a central character.

This book is gritty. It has intrigue and conspiracy, but on a level that is easily followed and well balanced. It has well written characters with a good insight into their worries, concerns and flaws, the stuff that makes them human and easier to relate to. It is a bit claustrophobic in places, but then it is supposed to be, as this is a major under current to the whole storyline, pressuring the characters and the situation. That the author is able to transfer that so well to the reader shows his skill. Action is plentiful and well written, with various storylines gently twisting as they run towards convergence. Isak seems to take a back seat a little in this book which is a bit of a shame after being the central aspect of the first book. However the alternate central aspects more than take up the slack and you find yourself routing for various different people in various different ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars I beg to differ... 18 Sep 2007
ATTENTION MR JONTYBALL. When reviewing a book perhaps I might suggest actually doing just that instead of citing a litany of other authors and deploring the times we live in. Yes Twighlight Herald is not all sweetness and light and indeed there is a pervadingg air of unease in sections of the book. That, I would argue, is entirely in keeping with a story which has been quite well crafted by Mr Lloyd. Having read his first, Stormcaller, on the recommendation of a friend I delved into Twighight Herald with some understanding of the background and indeed a few expectations. These have all unquestionably been met. For such a young author Mr Lloyd depicts an unreal world with admirable skill, and while some dialogue may seem somewhat trite it is a minor gripe about what is a really rather enjoyable read. I do not pretend to be a fan of all things fantasy, and find some of it down right peculiar, but this book is accessible and enjoyable for any reader that wants a good story and doesn't have to have a disney like ending to be satisfied. Good luck to Mr Lloyd and role on book three I say!

4.0 out of 5 stars Twilight to Dawn 16 Oct 2008
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
As a reader of a lot of fantasy and as one that didn't fully appreciate the original book in the series I'm pleased to report that I was proved wrong with Tom's second novel. The book is well written with cracking description with characters that develop as the situation affects their situations, a sign that the author has not only put a lot of thought into it but also shown that the characters have more of a tie to real life people rather than just the cycled out fantasy cliché's. Rather than concentrating on sticking to the established formulaic approach in the world creation, Tom has a touch more of the real world about his work and whilst his style of story won't appeal to everyone, the fact that the book leaves you asking more questions and worrying about how the characters are going to survive in their dark world it means that the purchase of the next novel in the series is a must.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every bit as good as the first! 2 Mar 2009
As with the first in the series Lloyd has created a fantasy feast of well written characters and a beautifully vivid world full of magic, war and turmoil. Isak as always is a great character, one of my personal favourites in the fantasy genre, he is young, powerful and often times brutal but we still see is vulnerable side when he is with his friends, this makes the main character much more in depth and satisfying to read.

In this story Isak has to comes to terms with the voice of an ancient Elven King inside of his head and the treason of one of his most powerful Lords. As if this is not enough he is forced to send out his army to a small town called Scree were an enormous amount of magic is being used. In this small town all the powers of the lands are represented there, both good and evil, there in this small town we'll see assassinations, demons raised from the pits of hell and awe inspiring battles. Will the be to much for the young Lord Of The Farlan to control? Or will he rise above the expectations of the world?

If you love fast paced with huge battles, politics and everything in between then Lloyd's work a go. You won't be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful stuff - T.L. does it again! 10 July 2008
By .
There's always a daunting feeling starting a new book by a favourite author, for fear they disappoint. Happily Lloyd does not let his faithful readers down. This wonderful tale of violence, betrayal, plot twists and good old-fashioned heroism had me gripped. Well done Sir!
