Customer Review

on 31 December 2011
Modern fantasy as we know it has its roots in the pulp magazines of the 1930s, where Robert E. Howard and friends defined the sword and sorcery genre. Since then, fantasy has evolved in many different types. The Copper Promise is a welcome slice of pulp tradition; an antidote to the often ponderous, leaden fantasy that has become fairly common these days.

And The Copper Promise really sparkles - it's a traditional quest adventure, with a band of heroes venturing forth into, as the subtitle of this first volume suggests, an ancient citadel. Williams has a real knack for characterisation, breathing life into the main players with wit and charm - Wydrin in particular, the fiesty, fiery, and very funny heroine of sorts.

If you like fantasy, you'll love this. And if you are a reluctant fantasy reader, like myself, I heartily recommend it - it's short and it's a lot of fun. It's also superbly written by someone who is bound for great things, of that I am sure.
