Magnificent and Epic!!!13 March 2011 - Published on Amazon.com
Joy Chant fits comfortably in the ranks of Jack Vance, Tolkien, George R.R. Martin, Brent Weeks, Bramah, Abercrombie, and Hobb. Her brilliant characterizations and deft storytelling skills are truly enthralling with atmospheric backdrops that will make it seem like you are there. Her books certainaly belong amongst the best in the fantasy/adventure genre. Truly magnificent and epic!!!

entertaining, and in only one book29 January 2006 - Published on Amazon.com
Hey, this is a good book. It has a story that is told in one volume, and does not develop through haphazard accidents. I highly reccommend it for someone looking for an entertaining read. The story does not need 5 volumes and 5000 pages to get to the end. Buy it. Read it.

Mystery loves history
Remarkable21 November 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
This is not a children's book. The issues treated here (love, slavery, death, in some cases rape, subjection of one race by another, etc.) are treated in a very personal manner, yet the author manages to do this without being overtly graphic. This is another culture and a wholly different world from our own but the story itself recreates that world in a way that resonates with the reader.

An Excellent Read19 August 2010 - Published on Amazon.com
While this book does not rise to the lyrical heights of Chant's "Red Moon and Black Mountain" (absolutely don't miss that one), this is an excellent story with believable characters you'll care about. It deals with themes like the relationship between man and the divine, leadership, cultural interaction, codes of honor,and warfare. Oh, yes -- there's a great love story as well. Chant doesn't beat you over the head with all this, it's just there, embedded in a good story. As with so many reviews, I look at the bad ones for this book and can't believe the writers actually read it. If you like a good story in a believable alternate world, with great unicorns to ride into battle, this is for you.
The Grey Mane of Morning1 November 2000 - Published on Amazon.com
The Grey Mane of Morning is the tale of the Khentor's, a peaceful race of plains dwelling folk, struggle for freedom from the tyranny of the `Golden People'. As long as they could remember the Khentorei lived in peace and relative happiness. The many different tribes of the Khentorei never warred with each other or the only neighbors they had known, the Kalnat. As long as the Khentorei could remember they knew their Gods and their horses. The great horned horses they rode across the great plains were their brothers. They loved their brothers as well as the plains that gave them all they needed to live. They also knew the `Golden People' a strange people of gold hair and eyes the color of the sky. The `Golden People' were as gods to the Khentorei and no one questioned that. The Golden People demanded a yearly tribute from each of the tribes of the Khentorei, and so it was given. No one ever questioned this, for it was all they had known. The Alnei, tribe of the wolf, were no different from the rest of the Khentorei. So they brought the annual tribute to their Golden deities. But when the Golden Ones took Nai, the high priestess, chosen of the gods, they had gone too far. Mor'ahn, spear of the sky, refused to allow his sister to just be taken. When Hran, Nai's mate, struck out against the Kalnat a vicious war began. But to a people where theft, rape and murder did not exist and everyone was family, war was strange sickening concept. Mor'anh is forced to reconcile his feelings of killing another human being and his hatred of the Kalnat. One day he must lead his people, but to where.
