FANTASY REVIEW: Talus and the Frozen King - Graham Edwards

Release Date: 10/04/14
Publisher:  Solaris


Heroes must rise ...The King is dead. His daughter, untested and alone, now wears the Steel Crown. And a vast horde is steadily carving a bloody road south, hell-bent on razing Steelhaven to the ground ...or the city will fall Before the city faces the terror that approaches, it must crush the danger already lurking within its walls. But will the cost of victory be as devastating as that of defeat?


Solaris likes to bring something different to readers so to get a detective novel set in the stone age was something that was not only a surprise but a wonderful turn of events. With the principle character Talus acting as Holmes alongside his sidekick Bran taking up the Watson role, the world is not only vivid but believable.

Add to this a tale of what seems like a senseless murder alongside a whole host of potential murderers and all round I was more than glued to the tale as it unveiled each piece of the solution a little at a time. Back this up with cracking dialogue accompanied by a hidden Moriarty and all round readers will not only lap this up but demand more. All round a great book and the start to what I hope will be a cracking series.
