'An utterly absorbing tale set in a fascinating world. A terrific start to the series' -- Mick Finlay
'It's rare to find such a richly imagined world about the art of myth and storytelling' -- Christopher Fowler
'Like a Philip Pullman rendition of Cloud Atlas. Widow's Welcome is an irresistibly thrilling introduction to a world of stories within stories - and I can't wait for more' -- Tim Major
'There are hidden depths to Widow's Welcome, and the rewards for spending time with this book are very great. I felt as if I was one of the Audience, and asked to cast my own vote on stories of tragedy, sacrifice and betrayal. If you love storytelling, you'll love this' -- Simon Morden
'There is more than meets the eye in this gripping and inventive debut ... Rife with intrigue, deceit and cultural tension' -- James Aitcheson
'Ingenious fantasy' * Western Mail *
'Melding noir with the fantasy genre, this is a rather clever read, one which feels especially prescient for our reality' * SciFiNow *
'David Towsey and Katherine Stansfield have created a vivid, inventive delight of a world ... To read the book is to be immersed in the customs, politics and stories of a refreshingly strange reality ... A satisfyingly literal spin on the politics of the UK today' * Western Mail *
'Its appeal is different to much other similar genre fare ... Damp and urban. To me it felt a lot more like books such as Gorky Park or The White Russian where the author uses the central plot device of a murder to explore the nuances of a more complex situation, and more intricate world ... A well told story, and I genuinely look forward to the next' * Concatenation. *
'This isn't your normal fantasy world-building, it's something different ... Plot aside, we are also treated to good, solid, believable characters ... Fun on the campaign trail. Recommended' * Concatenation. *
'[D.K. Fields] has created a vivid and believable world. The descriptions of place, system and character are clearly and interestingly drawn ... Fascinating' * Crime Review *
