Worth waiting for!
on 13 December 2013
With Beginning of a Hero Yallowitz dipped his toe in the ruffled waters of fantasy. With Prodigy of Rainbow Tower he has dived in head first and come up swimming strongly.
This second book in the Windemere series is richer, deeper, darker... and funnier. The world develops in detail and scope, the characters, already vivid and alive, take on a greater breadth and complexity... and the plot, of course, thickens, leaving a third book eagerly awaited.
It is somewhat unusual to find such strongly drawn female characters in a male-led fantasy. They are not simply warrior women in bikinis, nor soft, helpless maidens, but deep and complicated participants in the web of relationships and adventures.
You are likely to laugh, you may shed a tear... but you will be drawn in.
