Juliet E McKenna is weathered veteran of fantasy writing so her every new book is eagerly awaited treat. Being a final part of the so far excellent "The Hadrumal Crisis" trilogy, Defiant Peaks was anticipated with even more fervor than usual. As expected, Defiant Peaks doesn't disappoint. McKenna does what she does best and packs 500+ pages of relentless pace in this stunning wizard epic.
The ominous synopsis tells it all:
Even though Defiant Peaks could potentially be read as a standalone, in my opinion you shouldn't read it before you've, at least, read the other parts of the trilogy (Dangerous Waters and Darkening Skies). But the best part is that Defiant Peaks serves as a fulfilling ending on so many levels. Apart from being the final part of the trilogy, Defiant Peaks also closes various hanging threads from the previous Einarinn novels and serves as a triumph of McKenna fantasy writing.
We will be giving away one copy of Defiant Peaks as part of our giveaway next week so stay tuned!
