5.0 out of 5 stars Epic and spectacular, 5 Mar 2007
This review is from: Cry of the Newborn: The Ascendants of Estorea Book 1 (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
I bought this as soon as it came out. I read the Raven novels with great enjoyment, so I had very high hopes for this.

I wasn't disappointed. It is a little slower in pace than Dawntheif at the beginning, but once it builds up the momentum, you cannot put it down. Again James Barclay has created a wonderfully visual and brilliantly imagined magic system, a set of characters beautifully realised, some you will love, others you will hate. Paul Jehred in particular is a blazing character :) utterly brilliant stuff.

I'm currently reading Shout for the Dead, which is continuing the series in excellent fashion.
