The story moves at breakneck speed . . . immersive, action-packed fantasy -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
We Lie With Death was a hell of a ride . . . An easy five stars, I expect this to be on many end of year lists -- THE CHRONICLER
Madson has crafted a complex and immersive story that catapults the reader through a gripping series of adventures and doesn't let go until the final electrifying pages
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
Breathtakingly triumphant . . . it has become one of my favourite books of all time . . . a gripping, evocative hurricane of emotions that constantly took my breath away
I loved this book so much it's almost ridiculous . . . We Ride the Storm is dark fantasy done right. There's a lot going on and it never stops. It's also beautiful and deep, with characters that jump off the page. This book really surprised me. I expected to like it. I didn't expect to love it
Buckle your seatbelts and prepare for a hell of a ride
I loved this book! A lot
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
A complex tale of war, politics and lust for power -- GUARDIAN on WE RIDE THE STORM
Set in an Asian-inspired world with echoes of ancient China and the Mongol Empire this is a tale that hits all the right spots. Imaginative world building, a pace that builds perfectly to a heart-pounding finale and captivating, believable characters. There's a lot to love here. Highly recommended -- John Gwynne on WE RIDE THE STORM
I loved this book . . . It is-hands down-one of the best self-published books I've ever read
If you haven't had a chance to read We Ride the Storm, run don't walk. This was a fantastic follow-up! -- SUPERSTARDRIFER
This immersive, action-packed fantasy is sure to please -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
