More Reviews

Christopher Hyland, The Book Swede, has given The Princes of the golden Cage its second review from the UK.(The first was from Graeme’s Fantasy Book Review: Here.)

Here’s an excerpt from The Book Swede:

“All in all: a riveting book, not just a tale of mystery, but of magic, betrayal and love. That tends to be the blurb logline for just about every fantasy novel, but this is one where it is true and well-earned.” Read the entire review.

What Paul Abbamondi at Wistful Writings says about my book?

“The Princes of the Golden Cage is a lot of fun and a literal page-turner. All the hints and aptly placed twists culminate with an ending that is completely shocking while making sense in the run of things. I've even forgiven Mallet for making me start another series, but for what it's worth this is definitely a standalone adventure. Wholly intriguing and richly imagined, it's one of the better reads of 2007 that I've been lucky to enjoy.” Read more.

Here’s an excerpt from SciFiChick:

“The Princes of the Golden Cage is a fantastic mystery. And as the mystery dominates the story, I’d consider it more of a mystery than fantasy story. Though there are definitely elements of the fantastic with the magic-related deaths and supernatural monsters…. Fans of both mystery and fantasy will enjoy this exciting novel.” Read more.

Thanks for the linkage!

Although, actually, Graeme's Fantasy Book Review reviewed it before me (he's UK!!).

Hi Nathalie,

Here's another US review, by Don D'Ammassa. Not as in depth a review as most but still.. "One of the best first fantasy novels of the year."
