Chris Humphreys skilfully weaves together several different storylines without any feeling like they're rushed over and still manages to keep the momentum of the plot going throughout the book. It's an intriguing new look at immortality in a fantasy novel, and I highly recommend it. * THE BOOK BUNDLE *

Humphreys' plot, prose, and characters give this book a sense of quality and gravity without skimping on fun and readability * Grimdark Magazine *
Brilliant: smoothly-written, engaging, fascinating. The kid can write. The world is wonderful - I wish I'd thought of it * Conn Iggulden *
Instantly gripping and thoroughly unusual, this book ends on a cliffhanger which has me impatient for part two. * MORNING STAR *
