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.
