There are some exciting scenes, battles and fights and the magic is interesting - there is more to it than at first you realise.
G.R. Matthews, author of The Corin Hayes series
Watkinson has great fun with the world-building and the tropes of epic fantasy. With The Cracked Amulet she writes a series opener that recalls the scope, breadth and darkness of Tad Williams and JV Jones.
Steven Poore, author of The Heir to the North Duology
A wide ranging fantasy tale…bags of imagination on display…strongest in its world building and magic…
Mark Lawrence, author of The Broken Empire Trilogy, The Red Queen’s War Trilogy and The Book of the Ancestor Trilogy
War spreads further into Dumnon despite the coming of winter, and even more Murecken priests are on the hunt for those with power in their blood. Coryn now trains young warriors in Storr Haven in the use of magic, but he still searches for Katleya, the woman he lost.
Two young Londoners, Evie and Alan, are flung through a Portal into Dumnon. They must learn to fight and survive in an alien world they don’t understand.
A castle comes under siege. A Portal fractures. Sleeping dragons wake.
