The release of The Midnight Front, the first book in my new Dark Arts series from Tor Books, is still a few months away, but the folks at Kirkus Reviews have already weighed in with the first early trade review of my new opus.
I’m pleased to report that the verdict from Kirkus is quite favorable:
“Mack’s novel is … propulsive, with well-crafted characters and cinematic set pieces culled from the war’s most momentous crossroads. Equal parts brimstone and gunpowder, the book deftly mixes the tropes of high fantasy into a semirealistic portrayal of WWII…”
“A complex, entertaining fantasy that sets loose a ‘chosen one’ hero arc among the dogs of war.”
Not too shabby!
The Midnight Front will be released on January 30, 2018, in hardcover, trade paperback, eBook, and digital audio formats. You can pre-order a copy in the format of your choice from your favorite retailer now.
