Larke has a talent for world building and a fondness for unstable landscapes ... It's also great fun.
Glenda Larke writes stories of real consequence, and this is no exception. Powerful, down to earth and filled with the sharpness of the true storyteller, Mirage Makers is entertainment with an edge. Count me as a true fan.
I had serious difficulty in putting the book down... very strongly written and allows for more shades of grey than many fantasy novels do, but also a richly imagined and thoroughly believable world...
