The Year’s Midnight
A gifted psychiatrist, Daniel Dodson is perfectly aware that he’s in a tough place personally following the death of his wife. Then a mysterious new patient offers a welcome professional distraction.The world of swords and magic that Tenai so vividly remembers obviously can’t be real. The deadly enmity and long war that left such deep emotional scars plainly symbolize something else. But perhaps Daniel can use the signposts of those confabulated memories to aid Tenai in moving forward into a new life in the real world.
Praise for The Death’s Lady Trilogy:
5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant, so glad they came out all at once Reviewed in the United States on May 24, 2021
I’m so glad that all three books in this trilogy came out at the same time so that I could run screaming from one book to the next. (Well, I wasn’t screaming… out loud, anyway.) There’s so much that can be said about the world-building, the characters, the conflicts, the sheer wisdom and reflections built into that world.
Okay, just as an aside, I’m not going to gut myself with that sword so I can meet Lord Death. But everyone else in the book, minus a villain or two, I would love to sit down and chat with. As long as they weren’t asking me to take part in their martial art instructions. Horseback riding I can handle, even roughing it in a non-tech world, but coordination and swords, not so much.
If you like fantasy, great storytelling, tales of new worlds, new beginnings, and a bucketful or two of peril, you’ll love this story. Great for fans of Lois McMaster Bujold, Garth Nix, Brandon Sanderson, and the like.
Altogether, simply a wonderful, engaging, and enthralling adventure. Would give it 10 stars if I could.
