Has all the elements to become a modern classic of the genre. It's essentially a coming-of-age story that breaks out into a wide-screen fantasy extravaganza with huge stakes * Independent on Sunday on Starborn (Book One) * I thought it was great, reminding me of Trudi Canavan; it had me turning pages way into the night, which is not good at my age! What a mix: immersive worldbuilding, secret societies, a flawed and hugely likeable protagonist, and awesome magic. There's a lot to like here, but be warned, this book will seriously damage your sleep -- John Gwynne on Starborn (Book One) A brave heroine, a perilous destiny, and an intriguing world full of myth and mystery make for an enthralling read -- Gail Z. Martin on Starborn (Book One) Evocative, original world-building and a wonderfully feisty heroine: top marks to Lucy Hounsom -- Karen Miller on Starborn (Book One)
