I… did not get an advanced copy of The Sidhe, but I did borrow Lissa’s copy (if she said I stole it, she’s lyyyyying) and I want to write a review of it anyway because Chazz is a lovely human and her book was fantastic and deserves all the love.
So most of us in the fandom have read the original fanfic and, yes, you do see it in the book, but there’s so much more to this novel. The world that Brieden and Sehrys live in is expanded, giving you so much more than before. You learn more about what is happening behind the scenes, what’s going on in the kingdom, in between reading about the boys’ daring escape and travels to the border and beyond. Charlotte pulls you in from the beginning and doesn’t let go until the last page (and, arguably, even longer because this is only the first book in the series). You fall in love with her characters, you cheer on their triumphs and cry when they cry, you laugh over silly things and you wonder about the more serious aspects and the truth they ring from our world’s own twisted history (though we don’t have any cool fae kicking ass around here). The book is long and action packed from one side to the other and once you pick it up, you won’t want to put it down.
It’s a sure winner for any fantasy book lover out there and the end will have you clamoring for the next book, which frankly looks amazing. Happy reading!
“It was precisely fifty thousand years since the final day of Es Muchator, the Great Change, not that the people of Villalu were aware of it. Such things had not survived in their history books, and the little oral tradition that had been preserved from the Age Before the World had been distorted into nonsense over the millennia that had elapsed.
Yet it started. And no one noticed a thing.”
Excerpt from The Heart of All Worlds, Book 1: The Sidhe. Available worldwide on July 21st.
At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, N4AL’s Adron Buske had the chance to hang out on the convention floor with author Daniel H. Wilson.
Daniel H. Wilson is co-editor of the upcoming video game-inspired short story anthology, Press Start to Play.This groundbreaking anthology includes 26 stories from award-winning writers and game-industry titans who have embarked on a quest to explore what happens when video games and science fiction collide. From text-based adventures to first-person shooters, dungeon crawlers to horror games, these twenty-six stories play with our notion of what video games can be — and what they can become — in smart and singular ways.
Press Start to Play is available in stores and online on August 18th.
