Another review

.
Another excellent, albeit short, review for The Last Stormlord over at AsIf from Tehani Wessely, in which she says among other things:

As usual, Larke creates an intriguing cast of characters and a fascinating story that evolves and develops gradually, weaving a spell that envelops the reader and makes the book almost impossible to put down. My biggest problem is now the long wait for book two, but I have no doubt the wait will be well worth it!

She also comments that:
Glenda Larke is a skilful worldbuilder and in this new series she creates a remarkable desert land where water is treasured and the waterless are the outcasts of society.

If you are a real sff fan and read widely, but haven't read my book yet, you are probably wondering if The Last Stormlord avoids being a Dune lookalike. I hope it does, even though it has dunes and sand and water saving procedures. I certainly worked hard at making it a different kind of world.

(And so, re reviews, I am still waiting for the other shoe to drop...)

In the meantime I am still dealing with two copyedits and slowly going crazy.

My sentiments exactly!

The Last Stormlord is nothing like Dune and in fact I like it much better!

Glenda Larke said...

Deb - the waiting torture is my specialty...it's devised to pass on what I feel waiting for a book to come out!

Satima - that is praise indeed. Thank you!

I was a bit wary of it being like Dune, I admit, but no - it's totally different! You really make it into your own original world and I love it!
