Back in fine form,
This review is from: Secrets of the Fire Sea (Hardcover)
With the release of Secrets of the Fire Sea, Stephen Hunt once again proves his talent. Like the previous three books in the series this one examines his intricately created world from yet another genre (The first three being fantasy, adventure and sci-fi) while remaining in the same reality. This time Hunt has delved into the mystery genre, with a Sherlock Holmes style read. The two investigative characters are Boxiron and Jethro Daunt, a mechomancers creation and a defrocked priest (Watson and Holmes). Cue in the death of a high ranking church official in a remote island in the middle of nowhere, and the scene is set for yet another fantastic journey of action and adventure.
With a fantastic writing style that will grip you from the first to the last page, I am glad to have given Stephen Hunt the chance and read this series. Definitely one of the best authors I have come across in the fantasy genre for quite a number of years.
