Comments to Cry of the Newborn by James Barclay

Submitted by Anonymous (May 10, 2006)

LOL. Thanks, Art. Not sure where you got that idea from. :D I think James does this sort of thing very well. It was one of my favourite books of 2005. Big battles, big landscapes, lots of characters... all the things that I think I like about 'epic' fantasy. Interesting that it's going to be a duology rather than the more traditional trilogy.

I get the impression that you liked the book :)

Definitely needs a map, it would help a lot in picturing the trek that Jhered and the Ascendants make during the later part of the novel.

Thanks, Joe. You can download a map for now (thanks Paul!): http://www.pmaloney.co.uk/ascendants/AscendantsMain.htm and I'm pretty sure there are plans for a map in the mass market paperback. The issue is whether the reader should need to refer to a map or work it all out in their head, I guess. Best wishes, Hobbit.
