Risen – Reviews & Interviews

Risen’s now out worldwide, so here are some of the reviews it’s been getting!

Chloe Frizzle on Youtube has done a sequence of video reviews on the entire Alex Verus series.  Her reviews of books 1-3 are here, books 4-6 here, books 7-9 here, books 10-11 here, and Risen has a (spoiler-filled) review here.

Risen has been getting plenty of print reviews too, and they’ve been overwhelmingly positive.  I won’t link to all of them, but here are a selection of my favourites:

Beth Tabler (Goodreads)
Gareth Otton (Goodreads)
A Refuge From Life
Books Of My Heart
Caffeinated Reviewer

Reading through these reviews, one thing I’ve really noticed is just how many people have been following the series, and how much they were looking forward to or dreading the end (sometimes both).  It’s quite touching how much they’ve come to care about the story and the characters.

I’ve also done an interview for Grimdark Magazine, who gave Risen a very positive review a while back – you can read the interview here.

And don’t forget, I’ve got my AMA coming up!  It’ll be 4 days from now, on Tuesday December 14th, on Reddit’s r/fantasy sub.  I’ll put up a post on the 13th with more details.

    Here’s another positive review.

    I of course loved the finale. Loose ends tied up, the bad guys defeated and Alex and Ann live happy ever after, at least for now!

    Thank you, Mr. Jacka, for such a wonderful journey.
    Apart from a few disappointing moments for me, specifically, the final book is just gorgeous!
    I love Landis in this book, he is my favourite Light mage, hands down!

  3. Thanks so much for the shout out! I’ve absolutely loved reading and reviewing these books
