Product description

Review

" Portents of Chaos is very much in the tradition of other stories that blend sword and sorcery, romance, wizardry, and high fantasy--up to and including Game of Thrones. But it never seems derivative of other works; the imaginary-world fantasy carries enough seeming verisimilitude that at moments it reads like a solid historical novel.

Julius's prose style is well suited to the story she tells. It has the comfortable, old-fashioned feel of the narrative and dialogue of many other historical fantasies involving royals, warriors, wizards, and vassals. It never feels forced or mannered.

Julius's characters are well developed and believable, especially her female characters, Maura and Halla, who are determined, resourceful, and independent, even though they move through a male-dominated patriarchal society. Her other characters--especially Leif, with his previous unknown elven heritage, and Master Morgan, his mentor and the wizard whose actions carefully bring all of the subplots together--offer the story great diversity and depth." BookLife Prize

"I was absolutely enthralled with this book. The mystery of what happens in prologue carried all the way through to the end. I fell in love with every character and loved how they were woven together as you read further into the book. Truly, I can say I am excited for the next book to come to see what transpires next! There be dragons here, magic undiscovered, and friendships forged. Never quite sure what truths are real or what lies are to be believed." Robin Tipton, ARC reader
