I will endeavor not to bombard this blog with quotes from or links to reviews of COLD FIRE as they begin to appear (UK/Oz/NZ release is 1 Sept; US/NA release is Sept 26) .
However, it’s difficult not to get excited about the first review that appears in the wild, in this case, the forthcoming (Monday’s issue) Publishers Weekly.
I’m chuffed because the review (which can be found in its entirety here) mentions two things I am very glad to see highlighted:
Elliott’s second Spiritwalker novel (after Cold Magic) explores a magical alternate Earth in all its intricate and colorful glory.
And the mix of action and emotion that characterizes this particular story:
Elliott skillfully blends intrigue and romance in this lively series about strong women caught among powerful and deadly forces.
Great review, and I’m really keen to start reading it. I actually saw Cold Fire for sale today in a bookshop here in Perth, Australia, 2 days before it’s official release (don’t quite know how that works). Unfortunately I couldn’t afford to buy it there and then! But soon!!
Yes, I’ve been hearing of sightings Down Under. You fortunate people, you!
