One of the things I really like about compilation books is that you often find new authors with a style that you enjoy and read more of. With the best will in the world – and even with my reading speed of some 300 plus a year (!) – you just can’t read all the new authors (and old ones too) out there and so being led into a group of friends who write in a similar style is great.
So it was with the box set ‘Witches and Warriors’ which led me to Lindsay Buroker. A new author to me but one that has been writing Secondary World Sagas for about 7 years, and has managed to write some 6 different sets of novels in that time. All steam-punk and fantasy and is now a full-time author with her earnings.. but hasn’t she worked hard to get there?…
So I discovered Lindsay’s other series and was drawn to the new saga based on Earth – Rust and Relics .
A female Harrison Ford. Why not? A bull whip can be very handy it turns out for fighting, substituting for rope,useful in collecting items, and generally giving the wearer an air of menace!
A great collection of characters were all connected up into a fighting and relic hunting group with some amazing foes – and a strong hint that human behaviour is how these foes are created.
