Book Review Blurb: The Liar of Red Valley by Walter Goodwater

This one was… Weird. There were elements that reminded me of Simon R. Green’s Nightside series – lots of bizarre magical beasties and unusual magical abilities, many of which are introduced seemingly for no other reason than to expand the cast of characters… It can make for a confusing and distracting read at times, but the plot and concepts here are original and interesting and there’s a twist thrown in three-quarters of the way through that I didn’t see coming for a hundred miles. It saved the story for me, especially considering the somewhat trite and tidy – and unbelievably quick, given the long build up – ending. It was an entertaining and quick read and would make for a cool movie or miniseries, as it would be visually stunning.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.
