Every single page hooked me . . . An impressive debut
NOVEL NOTIONS
A visceral, intriguing, intense and emotionally charged ride. I cannot wait to see where the next book takes us and eagerly await its arrival. I'd strongly recommend this bloody and bold tale to fans of Mark Lawrence [and] George R. R. Martin
GRIMDARK MAGAZINE on WE RIDE THE STORM
Intricate, compelling and vividly imagined, this is the first in a new series that I am hugely excited about. Visceral battles, complex politics and fascinating worldbuilding bring Devin's words to life
Anna Stephens on WE RIDE THE STORM
This first book in Madson's Vengeance Trilogy does not disappoint . . . if you love excellent characterization in your fantasy, as well as unique magic and a non-Western setting, give this one a try
