Aven thrives. It’s full of boundless energy, of people prepared to have stand-up arguments in public, or get together to form an impromptu fire brigade. They’re a people expressing themselves; and one of the themes running through the text is the price of that expression, personally and on a broader level.
One of the best fantasy books I’ve read in quite some time. … Although a debut novel, From Unseen Fire reads like it was written by a veteran author. I greatly look forward to Cass Morris’s next Aven book.
