Adam Whitehead over at the Wertzone has an advanced review up of an upcoming UK debut. THE RED WOLF CONSPIRACY looks to be a nautical fantasy. Adam gave it four stars and expects that the author, Robert V. S. Redick will, "be 'the' big new fantasy author of 2008, and deservedly so."
THE RED WOLF CONSPIRACY comes out on February 1st. Gollancz is releasing it in both hardcover and trade paperback. Here is a small excerpt from Adam's review:
The Red Wolf Conspiracy is the opening volume of The Chathrand Voyage, a fantasy trilogy by debut author Robert V.S. Redick. Gollancz's pre-publicity draws comparisons with Scott Lynch and Philip Pullman, and I suspect over the coming months a similar word-of-mouth pre-release excitment will build that is comparable to Lynch's The Lies of Locke Lamora or Rothfuss' The Name of the Wind. Certainly The Red Wolf Conspiracy is an exceptionally fine novel and more than worthy of such comparisons.Head on over to the Wertzone for Adam's review, plus Amazon links and more.
