Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Everything I look for in a fantasy."—George R.R. Martin on The Dragon's Path"

The Dagger and Coin series had this reviewer hooked from day one, but with The Widow's House, Abraham manages to wiggle the hook and embed it a bit further. The slow burn of the build in this series comes to a boiling point with brilliantly paced action separated by beautiful, quiet description. Abraham's characters win all as he takes readers through every step of their respective character evolutions."—RT Book Reviews on The Widow's House"

Abraham builds on The Dragon's Path to create and sustain a rich, satisfyingly complex epic fantasy."—Publishers Weekly on The King's Blood."

Prepare to be shocked, startled, and entertained."—Locus on The Dragon's Path"

It's as if Clint Eastwood went to Narnia...A pleasure for Abraham's legion of fans."—Kirkus on The Dragon's Path"

Abraham is fiercely talented, disturbingly human, breathtakingly original and even on his bad days kicks all sorts of literary ass."—Junot Diaz on The Long Price Quartet"

This smart, absorbing, fascinating military fantasy, exciting and genuinely suspenseful, will keep readers on their toes."—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on The Tyrant's Law

Locus on The Dragon's Path
"Prepare to be shocked, startled, and entertained."
George R.R. Martin on The Dragon's Path

This is a very interesting continuation of the series. No spoilers here, just admiration for the author and this book. If you are reading The Dagger and Coin, you will enjoy book 4, The Widow's House. Thank you DA for another wonderfully written, intriguing book.

Interesting finale to the series, but still leaves things hanging. This book would not make much sense if you have not read the 1st two, however. Lots of focus on battles and the personalities don't develop beyond the previous story line, so other than finding out how it all ends, you could get by without reading this one.

With this Series Abraham plants his flag in the mountaintop cementing himself as one of the premiere fantasists working today. His Penultimate installment is the perfect ramp up to what promises to be a stunning conclusion.
