    SOO GOOD

    This is the first book by J.V. Jones I have read. I was looking for a good epic fantasy (my favorite genre) to read, when my friend told me about a site with lists of books, and this one is the only one I found that even sounded slightly interesting. I began to read it three or four days ago, and the only things that kept me from reading nonstop was the need to sleep, and school the next day. I originally got this book from the library, but trust me, it is going to become a permanent addition to my personal library. GREAT WORK Ms./Mrs. Jones!!!!!

    One of the best books I've read

    The Barbed Coil captured and held my attention from the start. I felt what the characters felt and didn't want to leave their world. It had me almost nauseous with anticipation in parts. This book is high above so many I've read lately. I'll read anything of Jones'.

    The Barbed Coil - a must read

    J.V. Jones is one of the best in the field of high fantasy! She has an unbelievable ability to know the most intricate details about how things happen. Her stories, especially The Barbed Coil, take the reader into a world that Jones' makes real. I enjoyed the ride, and I loved the way the story never turned the way I expected it to. I also admire the way Jones isn't afraid to describe the fights and the battles to the same detail the she describes the rest of the fantasy world. To heck with pc. I think most people enjoy getting the whole story. I can hardly wait for J.V. Jones next book!
