“Epic Fantasy Debut”

Kirkus-Reviews

In this energetically plotted series opener, Walker balances a large cast in numerous locations (and many classic dungeon crawls) across Balmora.

Walker also keeps fantasy fans tuned in with a barrage of inventive characters (such as Ecrin the Gorchen), creatures (the batlike Raza), and villains (the merciless Vorkalth).
