Review

"Those who eagerly anticipated this volume will be even more desperate for the next, and if the author's stunning rate of improvement is anything to go by, it will be well worth the wait."

Praise for
The Symphony of Ages:
"ELEGY FOR A LOST STAR"
"With warmth, humor, and vivid details, the people and places of this saga feel far more alive than standard fantasy heroes and villains usually do."--"Romantic Times Bookclub"
"Haydon masterfully maintains characters, the world they inhabit, and the flux of epic adventure and turmoil to make this book worthy of the series and leave readers yearning for the rest of the story."--"Booklist"
"Those who eagerly anticipated this volume will be even more desperate for the next, and if the author's stunning rate of improvement is anything to go by, it will be well worth the wait."--"Publishers Weekly" Starred Review

"REQUIEM FOR THE SUN"
"With bright and tender touches, Haydon breathes new life into fantasy in this sequel to her bestselling Rhapsody Trilogy. . . . The rich complexities of historical subtext, unsubtle scheming of religious and political leaders and classical romantic elements keep the pages turning. Although quite readable as a stand-alone work, the looks threads left untied promise numerous future volumes, which are certain to be devoured by Haydon's growing legion of fans."--"Publishers Weekly"
"Sequel to Haydon's Rhapsody Trilogy fantasy/romance, begun impressively with "Rhapsody" . . . An opera of the four elements, moody and melodious."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"This sequel to the Rhapsody Trilogy ("Rhapsody: Child of Blood"; "Prophecy: Child of Earth"; "Destiny: Child of the Sky") continues a tale of love and treachery that spans centuries and worlds. Vivid characters and a richly defined world borrowed from Norse and Celtic legends make this continuing fantasy saga a good choice for most libraries."--"Library Journal"
"Bears for neologisms may growl over words such as coronated and infrastructure, but even they will raise glasses to toast Haydon's high levels of achievement in characterization, world building through well-chosen detail, folkloric and musical expertise, and warmth of spirit. Let us be thankful that this rhapsody isn't over and, indeed, promises to linger with spirit for at least two more volumes."--"Booklist"
"DESTINY: Child of the Sky"
"Haydon culminates her powerful fantasy saga with adventure, treachery, mystery and romance . . . an exciting read that will pique new readers and delight fans of Haydon's first two books. Her superbly rendered characters incite us to share their triumphs and sorrows, even as her lyrical prose casts its wondrous invitation to visit her world."--"Romantic Times Bookclub "Gold Medal Review
"Though obviously inspired by music theory, Norse and Celtic folklore, and seemingly by such authors as Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Patricia A. McKillip, Anne McCaffrey and Palmer Brown ("Cheerful"), the author uses a fluid writing style to build a world uniquely and compellingly her own."--"Publishers Weekly"
"In a book world awash in sword-slinging fantasy novels, each trying to out-Jordan the other, the arrival of yet another big new series on the scene is . . . no big deal. But much to the delight of readers bored to tears by doorstopper clones, Elizabeth Haydon's tale is unique, thrilling, and utterly romantic from start to finish."--Amazon.com, Best of 2001
"PROPHECY: Child of Earth"
""Prophecy" proves that Elizabeth Haydon is a superstar and not a one hit wonder. Haydon's world is so real the audience will feel that we too have been transported in time and space to a wondrous vision."--"Midwest Book Review"
"One great book ("Rhapsody") might be a fluke. But its sequel, "Prophecy," keeps right on developing great characters in a believable fantasy world without sacrificing the momentum of a terrific story. Fans of epic fantasy will find Haydon a worthy successor to Tolkien, ranking with Robin Hobb and Guy Gavriel Kay."--Amazon.com, Best Book & Editor's Pick for 2000
"As strong and compelling as its predecessor, the action is exhilarating; and sometimes broad, sometimes wry humor leavens the story's horror. As in high fantasy at its best, the sense of foreboding is palpable, the world building is convincing and consistent, the evildoers are truly wicked, and the battles are ferocious."--"Booklist"
"RHAPSODY: Child of Blood"
* "Distinguished by superior wit and intelligence, this fantasy debut opens what looks to be an outstanding saga. One of the finest high fantasy debuts in years."--"Publishers Weekly" Starred Review
"A stunningly told tale by a new fantasy author who is sure to go far."--Anne McCaffrey
""Rhapsody" is movingly-written, epic fantasy. I read this book with a growing sense of pleasure, impressed not only with the author's deft plotting but also with her use of language. Haydon is a writer."--Morgan Llywelyn
"Filled with detail and a complex, multi-faceted plotline, it's an epic beginning to what is being billed as a major fantasy series, and readers will quickly pick up on the echoes of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth and David Eddings Belgariad series, as well as Celtic and Norse mythology, and even a dash of Mozart's "Magic Flute.""--"Toronto National Post & Mail"
"This author will surely go far. I am amazed at the growing number of strong new voices in fantasy, hitherto mostly male. Elizabeth Haydon is sure to change that."--Piers Anthony


"With warmth, humor, and vivid details, the people and places of this saga feel far more alive than standard fantasy heroes and villains usually do."--"Romantic Times Bookclub"
