First reader-review for HEART OF BRIAR…

“Heart of Briar is an engaging fantasy read that works to turn a number of fantasy tropes and legends on their heads. There are elements from traditional tales like Tam Lin to ideas that would be more at home in a modern paranormal romance, mixed together and subverted.” (from GoodReads)

Why yes, yes I did. I did that thing.

The reader was less certain about Jan and Martin’s motivations, but more of that will be coming in SOUL OF FIRE (October), as more of the curtain is pulled back….

As a reminder, this is what RT Reviews said:

“You can always count on (the) gifted Gilman to deliver richly layered fantasy filled with winning characters and well-defined worlds, and she doesn’t disappoint with HEART OF BRIAR. (A) terrific series starter.” ♦♦♦♦ (4 stars)

This is a very different book from anything I’ve done before, and I’m not sure I’ll ever write anything like this again, but it was fun. I’m glad that’s coming through in the reading experience, too.

It ships in eight days.  meeep!
