A BETRAYAL IN WINTER
August 28, 2007
A BETRAYAL IN WINTER, the second volume of Daniel Abraham’s terrific new fantasy sequence, “The Long Price,” is just out in hardcovers. Daniel is a good friend and a sometime collaborator of mine, as I mentioned when I reviewed the first volume of his series, so I am naturally biased in his favor… but that being said, these are splendid books, original and engrossing and well worth the time of any fan of good fantasy. If you haven’t tried these yet, the place to start is with A SHADOW IN SUMMER, the first installment of the story, just out in paperback. The awkwardly titled A BETRAYAL IN WINTER — I wish they had stayed with WINTER CITIES, Daniel’s own title for the novel — is just as strong as its predecessor… but wait till you see what’s coming in volumes three and four! Abraham just keeps getting better and better.
