Today on Fantasy Book Critic, Liviu Suciu and Cindy Hannikman team up for a very detailed and thoughtful review of Secrets of the Sands by Leona Wisoker. For those two reviewers’ many fans, the thought and effort that went into the review will come as no surprise; they give a great deal of information on the novel and what makes it work, as well as discussion of their trips through the story. As is always the way on Fantasy Book Critic, if you’ve been uncertain as to whether this was a book for you, Suciu and Hannikman will give you the data you need to decide.
I’m delighted to report they gave the book very high marks. Suciu says,
Highly, highly recommended as a haunting novel and a page turner and an A+ as an average of a solid A thread and an A++ one, while the announced sequel became another asap novel for me.
And Hannikman agrees:
In the end, I was highly impressed with this novel. There is something about this book that makes me want to reread it again. I completely agree with the comparison to Maria V Snyder, Leona Wisoker has tremendous talent and I can’t wait to see what she brings to the table with the second novel of this series. The hardest part is going to be the wait for the second novel.
