There's always something nerve-wracking about a book coming out. You write it because you want as many people to read and enjoy it BUT there's also the worry that people are going to read it! Luckily the first few reviews for UNTIL THE LAST have been very positive.
Scott said "Mike's storytelling is up there with the best in the business, his ability to subtly thread in twist and turns that you just don’t see coming but have you jumping from your seat was utterly brilliant! The final 30% of this book was just such a sensational thrill ride, I had such a hard time putting this book down. Mike have managed to build such a bloody, grim but marvellous story in this series, which I think will appeal to a wide range of audience. Mike has definitely become an auto buy author for me."
Benedict from the SFF Oasis said "Mike has written a gritty and exciting story about what normal people do when evil beats them down. His words flow smoothly like a freshly made death bed and his characters leap off the page wielding an axe in both hands. It's in my opinion that his writing quality is top level and he should be regarded with the likes of Gwynne and Abercrombie for writing compelling characters in a gritty world. To roundup, I really enjoyed this book and I love this trilogy. Fantastic characters, a gritty plot and lightning fast pace make this a series you really need to absorb. Brilliant fantasy."
A Netgalley reviewer said "What an ending to this amazing fantasy series. I won't tell you what happened. But you really do not want to miss this ending."
I'm also looking at giveaways for the launch. The plan is to print a limited edition set of signed postcards that I'll send to the Broken Binding. I've done the character art for three of them so far.
Ralasis, Aasgod and Raaku will finish off the set. Stay tuned for more info as and when I have it.
