A fast-paced fantasy thriller which should appeal to readers of CJ Sansom.
A richly written, always engaging work, with well-developed characters and a nice mystery to get stuck into
Drakenfeld is an interesting blend of Historical Fantasy and Crime Fiction, set in a beautifully imagined world that seems to have been inspired by Ancient Rome . . . a novel that became more and more interesting as the depths of its groundwork became clear
Charan Newton's new novel Drakenfeld shares more with the historical fiction and detective fiction novels than it does with traditional epic fantasy, but there's just enough to his world that will make this feel just at home with most epic fantasy readers. The result is a deliberate, interesting novel that grows in scale from beginning to end
