Yep, I am happy…
The pressure is beginning to ease. A second reviewer likes the book!
The review is from AurealisXpress, which I assume means it is in the Aurealis Magazine for August, and it is written by Chrisetta MacLeod.
“I am in awe of the sheer virtuosity with which Larke has created her world. Water, or rather the scarcity of water, is the basis of government, economy, social hierarchy and even religion. The Stormlord ability, which can pull water from the sea, and send it where needed, is a hereditary gift. There is a conspiracy to kill off those with degrees of this ability, to return to human warfare and the vagaries of climate.”
The middle of the review gives a synopsis of the story, and the review ends like this:
“What a tale! Can’t wait for the next instalment. This is a GREAT book. I was so sad when I finished it; luckily it’s going to be a trilogy. AND, she’s Australian.“
