...that every author loves.
Every now and then you get a review from someone who really "gets" what you, the writer, are trying to say.
Here is one such, from Ryan Frye at Civilian Reader blog.
Below is Ryan's summary, but you can read the whole review here.
Overall, The Lascar’s Dagger is a great read. The pacing is
great, with plenty of action and swagger. While I thoroughly enjoyed
every aspect of this book, Larke left plenty of hints that there’s
greater depth to the characters, the world and the story to be found in
later volumes. If you are looking for a new epic fantasy series that
will engage, entertain (and maybe even enthrall you) in equal measures,
then Larke’s your author and The Forsaken Lands is your series.
