Dark Blade Whispers of the Gods Book 1 Press Reviews

This has everything you want from an epic fantasy adventure - devious Gods, hideous monsters, a portal to another dimension and a hero with an enchanted blade. Great stuff * Charlie Higson, author of the Young Bond series * Terrific, vivid storytelling ... Feasey is a skilled weaver of atmosphere, whether that's the all-consuming fury of a fight, or the oppressive fear born of hunting a monster through a fog-shrouded wood. Dark Blade is a rollicking adventure * SFX * Fans of Rick Riordan and John Flanagan have a whole new world of dark magic, mysterious gods and brave heroes waiting for them * Sebastien de Castell, author of the Spellslinger series * Dark Blade is a razor-sharp, spellbinding read full of intrigue and magic. This tale truly takes the crown as the young heir to the likes of Game of Thrones and Throne of Glass * Chris Bradford, author of the Young Samurai series * A daring and exciting swords-and-sorcery fantasy - traditional in the very best sense of the word. I thoroughly enjoyed this classic tale of monsters, magic and swashbuckling adventure * Kesia Lupo, author of We Are Blood and Thunder * Feasey brings us a fresh new fantasy hero in the form of Lann Fetlanger. The world of Strom is rich with peril, political intrigue, conspiracies and betrayals ... Conflicted heroes, cursed swords, diabolical sorcerers and warrior princesses. Why aren't you reading this already? * Sarwat Chadda, author of The Ash Mistry Chronicles series * An epic dark fantasy set in an arcane world where kings are murdered, monsters roam and ordinary boys are given extraordinary gifts * Mark Walden, author of the H.I.V.E. series * A powerful, compelling story in a world that stays with you * Angie Sage, author of the Septimus Heap series *
