The Hidden Keystone – Book 1 in The Salt Lines saga – will be released in about 2 weeks, and the early reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. Here’s a quick round up:
“A rich and vivid historical fantasy grounded in meticulous research, The Hidden Keystone is a powerful tale of political machinations, terrible persecution, and the indomitable hope of the human spirit. Against the bloody backdrop of the First Crusade of 1099 in the Holy Land and the shocking oppression of the Templars in the 1300s France, this masterful work pits the cosmic forces of Mercy and Severity and their human agents against each other in a never-ending battle for the human soul, holding the reader in its grasp well beyond the last page.”
– Dr Karen Brooks, author of The Brewer’s Tale, The Darkest Shore, and The Good Wife of Bath.
“A marvellous blend of the historical and the fantastic.”
- Keith Stevenson, author of Horizon and The Lenticular Series
“The Hidden Keystone is a fascinating historical fantasy story that blends the reality of the Crusades with a mystical tale that hooks the reader into its world, and Burrage leaves them wanting more in the inevitable sequel.”
– Joseph Sullivan, Aurealis Magazine (Issue 164)
