ACACIA by David Anthony Durham

Readers who have been around a while will know that I've been looking for a male debut author to feature here. I've decided to read ACACIA, by David Anthony Durham. He is not a new author, but he is a new fantasy author.

You may not think this makes much of a difference, but my own mother feels betrayed by Nora Roberts for going fantasy, and she refuses to read any of her newest books. Therefore, Durham actually risks alienating some of his former readers by going speculative.

From the blurbs, it appears to be just the sort of epic, sweeping fantasy that I like.

It's not so much a fantasy novel as a "normal" novel set in a fantasy style. I love it, and I'm sure it's going to do great.

I hope you'll comment on it, then, when I begin to write about it.
