Product description


Praise for The House War novels:

"Richly and superbly detailed. Her characters live and sing." --Examiner

"Lush, richly intricate...Jay is charismatic, deeply compelling.... The story sucked me in and didn't spit me out till the end.... Some say Michelle West has been propelled into the ranks of George R. R. Martin and Robin Hobb--I say she's been there all along." --Night Owl Reviews

"Fans of award-winning Toronto fantasy writer Michelle West will be delighted with this return to the vivid and detailed universe of the Sacred Hunt and the Sun Sword series.... In a richly woven world, and with a cast of characters that ranges from traumatized street kids to the wealthy heads of the most prominent houses in Averalaan, West pulls no punches as she hooks readers in with her bold and descriptive narrative." --Quill & Quire

"This is a compelling story with riveting and finely wrought characters that will keep you up well into the night. This story will go down as one of the best novels in its genre, propelling West into the ranks of Robin Hobb and George R.R. Martin. It's simply a great read, don't miss it." --The Maine Edge

"West is growing into a superb storyteller as demonstrated by this best effort to date with a fully realized world populated by a diverse range of nicely developed characters and a compelling storyline that hooks readers in from the start." --Monsters and Critics

"I am glad I read it. It is out of the ordinary for a fantasy tale, and is a Hamlet rather than a Henry V." --Grasping for the Wind

"Michelle West tells a wonderful tale.... I really like the way West draws the charac­ters, making them, even the children, memorable. A lot of untold riches are implied here, and I'm waiting eagerly for sequels." --Philadelphia Center City Weekly Press

"The power and majesty of the series is in the characters, although the world itself is extraordinary.... The House War series is timeless and clearly takes it place at the top of its genre. It is a full-bodied piece of work that is satisfying, intriguing and thought-provoking." --Bitten by Books --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
