The Amber Crown’s First Review

Though it’s not due out until 11th January 2022, ARCs (Advance Reading Copies) are going out now, and the first review of The Amber Crown is here on Nimue Brown’s blog. It’s a very considered and thoughtful review without giving away any spoilers. Go and take a look.

“All of the characters are engaging, well rounded and interesting people. All of them are messy and flawed in their own ways, and driven by their own issues and obsessions.”

“If you like your fantasy on the dark side without it glorifying the more horrific elements, this book will suit you well.”

I found the approach to language exceptional and highly effective. But then, Jacey is steeped in the folk tradition and it shows in the work.”

It’s published on both sides of the Atlantic, so you can pre-order it now:but doesn’t quite seem to have its act together yet. It’s ‘trade paperback’ i.e. large format paperback. The regular size will come out somewhen: PenguinRandomHouse / / Book/Kindle / Barnes & Noble Book/Nook / Books A Million / Bookshop.Org / Hudson Booksellers / Indiebound
