At the risk of thinking that people are finally getting the Twilight Reign and setting myself up for another round of childish abuse on places like the Westeros forums, there have actually been a few nice things said about Grave Thief. I guess it’s a series that needs to be seen as a whole and the first book was just that, a first novel with all the mistakes one finds in them, so it’s good to be seeing things like this lot appear:
"The Twilight Reign series has demonstrated a depth of involvement and a sense of epic scale that has strained against the confines of each volume. It’s obvious Lloyd has a vision of exactly where his power-hungry gods and kings are going, and its proving to be an extraordinary journey."
DREAMWATCH TOTAL SCI FI
"Every character plays a part, and with each new chapter comes a new thread, a new twist and a renewed sense of uncertainty. Lloyd’s writing is both poetic and colourful, making Isak’s tormented dreams a graphic reality and causing the beautifully artistic landscape to develop a character of its own. The outcome will nevertheless take your breath away and leave you gasping for the follow-up."
"Lloyd’s world owes more to Michael Moorcock than Tolkien, though the braided plot structures of his book are standard modern fantasy. Dark and brooding nonetheless."
