Highly recommended * Independent * A fresh take on classic tropes, this debut novel of dragons, lost magic and dungeon adventure is 21st century fantasy at its best * SFX magazine * The Copper Promise is near-perfect fantasy-adventure fun and a breath of fresh air . . . Read it and remind yourself what made you fall in love with fantasy * Starburst Magazine * A gripping, fast-paced adventure that's a must-read * SciFiNow *
