A review for Deborah Jay’s The Prince’s Man from Meeka of Acflory… here is a short extract and then you can head over to read the rest
I gave Deborah Jay’s novel – The Prince’s Man – 5/5 stars and posted this review on both Goodreads and Amazon:
I’m not sure what I was expecting when I started reading ‘The Prince’s Man’, but the reality blew me away. The story is a grown up fantasy reminiscent of Robin Hobb’s Farseer series [which I also happen to love]. You’ll find Machiavellian politics, intrigue, loyalty, a hint of love, and a cast of characters you can relate to. Yes, they have their flaws, but don’t we all?
To my mind, watching the characters change and grow is at least half the fun. The other half is getting to know the world in which those characters live. In all types of speculative fiction, the world is as much of a ‘character’ as the characters themselves. Think how important the planet Arrakis is to the story of Dune.
Head over to read the review… and as a bonus it is 99c/99p until Sunday 14th April.
