A great scond novel in a new fantasy series,
This review is from: The Map Of All Things: Book 2 of Terra Incognita (Paperback)
Known perhaps more for his Dune work, Kevin's fantasy offering may not be something that you're too aware of. Here in the second tale in his Terra Incognita series the tale picks up where the original left off leaving the reader without chance to gather breath.
The prose is sharp, the descriptiveness ideal and characters that really leap off the page to make them a cast that you just can't wait to adventure with. Whilst there's a great round up of previous events at the beginning you really have to read the original to get the most out of the careful world building as its on a similar scale to Erikson's Malazan world. Hopefully some of the awards will recognise this as it really does deserve some recognition.
