A Genre Novel That is Under-Rated
My personal choice here is actually a series of five novels - a little bit of a cheat, you might think, but they're irretrievably interlinked.
This would be The Tales of Einarinn by Juliet E McKenna. They are traditional fantasy, with well-drawn female characters and some stunning battle sequences. The prose is no-nonsense and effective, and there is a deliciously warm centre (rather like a chocolate melt!) to the plotlines.
I really liked these when I read them, but I simply cannot find anyone else who has read them!
Have you read them? If so, what did you think of them? Would you agree that they are under-rated?
