A first class adventure which moves with a pace and panache rarely seen these days. If you like good future fantasy youll love this. Reminiscent of M. J. Harrison or China Miéville at their fascinating best. I enjoyed Stealing Into Winter a lot. --Michael Moorcock

In terms of style - comparisons are always difficult, but as a guide I would suggest there is more Moorcock and Saberhagen in the author's choice of pace and tone than there is of Abercrombie, Meiville or Martin.
I look forward to the next volume.
I had seen this book advertised and meant to read it for a while.. Then it became available on kindle for 99p.. bargain! Having read it I would have gladly paid more. There are lots of sci fi / fantasy novels around at the moment some very good and some very poor or unimaginative. I am happy to say that this novel falls much closer to the first category than the latter. I think fans of Michael Moorcock would enjoy this novel. This is not an action adventure, though there are some action sequences and it certainly starts with a bang! But it is a story that held my attention from start to finish. There were a few moments when the next chapter did not seem to follow on from the previous one.. I found myself checking that I had not skipped pages on the Kindle, however it soon became clear that this was a way that the author moves things on from one episode to another , a way of showing the passage of time rather than long drawn out blow by blow descriptions of, everything.. I found that I liked this approach, It led me to thinking about events more in my imagination.
I don't want to give the plot away . But the story centres on Jeniche, a thief who escapes from prison to find her city under attack from an invading army. As she goes about surviving in the city she acquires an amulet, meets a group of monks who want her to lead them out of the city to their home across the desert and makes the acquaintance of the mysterious man Altud. What is the link with the past? What are the invaders after, will Jeniche help the Monks?.. Having finished the book, I can say I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in the series as soon as Mr Talboys can get it published.
I'm really looking forward to the next in the series -the final image in this book is still lingering in my mind.
I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series and hoping it will be available soon.
It seemed very like so many others, I felt I had read it before, something you would never get with a China Mieville book, and rather dull. I wasted too much money and won't do that again, would not have minded had it been £1.Sorry folks!
