Library Journal’s SF/F Debut of the Month: Blood’s Pride by Evie Manieri

February 19, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments


Blood’s Pride by Evie Manieri is Library Journal’s February 2013 SF/F Debut of the Month!

Here’s the full starred review, or you can read it on the Library Journal website:

Without warning, the warlike Norlanders invaded the lands of the Shadar, enslaving the people and reaping the profits from the black ore mined to make the enchanted swords of the Norlander warriors. Unable to defend themselves against the pale-skinned, undead conquerors, the Shadar nevertheless attempt a rebellion and hire a fierce mercenary known only as The Mongrel, a woman whose body bears the ravages of previous wars and whose temperament is both volatile and, some say, mad. VERDICT Manieri’s debut, the first of a projected epic fantasy series, presents a striking world with civilizations similar to those of the Vikings and the nomadic cultures of the Middle East, and with the Mediterranean sensibilities of the ancient Greeks. Her characters are passionate and memorable, lending a personal touch to a complex tale of clashing cultures and philosophies. Fans of Sharon Shinn, Elspeth Cooper, and Gail Z. Martin should enjoy Manieri’s approach to culture and drama.

    I got this book the other day and I am about half way through it. There is a lot of different characters to keep with but so far its pretty good. I really like The Mongrel.
