“Aryan’s tale is steeped more solidly in the intrigues of character clashes, petty politics, and power struggles in a culture whose marginalization of outsiders has significant contemporary resonance. His novel will whet fans’ appetites for the next installment in this gripping high fantasy series. ” Publishers Weekly
“There’s a lot going on in this book. It can be, by turns brutal, heart-warming and cleverly plotted.” British Fantasy Society
“I really enjoyed Magefall, it furthers the story and is a very easy read. It isn’t a huge novel, like Mageborn, so there is very little time for filler and, as a result, the main story never drags. You don’t get lost in endless wittering and pointless story telling that doesn’t add anything to the story so you get a lean and decently paced book. I can’t wait to find out how it ends.” The Hobbleit
