Product description

Review

Genre labels just don’t apply here. With Nights of Villjamur Mark has managed to incorporate so many wonderfully varied ideas and themes into a decent blend of excitement and interest that the marketing department is going to have to invent a whole new section just for him. -- Peter F. Hamilton

A promising new writer whose prose is dynamic and whose imagination is often startling. -- Jeff VanderMeer

A dark epic which shows its debt to Gormenghast: death stalks the shadows and scheming, idiosyncratic characters have their own agendas. This is fantasy with vast scope and ambition… a complex, eldritch vision. ― Guardian

This is a promising start to a series worth pursuing. ― Times

Newton handles his multilayered world and diverse cast of characters with the assurance of an experienced author and balances his fantasy tropes with elements of horror and political commentary in vividly descriptive, compelling prose. ― Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

Newton’s compelling and visionary debut approaches epic fantasy with a fresh eye. Highly recommended. ― Library Journal (Starred Review)

A great book, which takes old tropes and re-imagines them into something new and memorable. It is an assured tale written with style, intelligence and skill, written inside a fantastically set premise and brilliantly focused novel that shows all the strengths of the genre . . . very highly recommended. ― SFF World --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
