Sarah Broadhurst's view...

She has a lush, luxurious, highly colourful style which I find enchanting. Full of twists and turns and magic and spellbinding imagination, she is one of my favourites in the genre. This is the beginning of a trilogy ‘Lionwolfâ but complete within itself. Itâs an exhilarating rollercoaster read of ghosts, gods and demons set in a frozen waste land. Not to be missed; itâs fantastic.
Comparison: Katharine Kerr, Jenny Wurtz, Ursula K Le Guin.
Similar this month: David and Leigh Eddings, Andy Secombe (for comic fantasy).

If you like Tanith Lee you might also like to read books by Ursula Le Guin, Robin Hobb and C J Cherryh.

Synopsis

Cast A Bright Shadow by Tanith Lee

From one of the foremost fantasy writers of her time, the first book of the long-awaited 'Lionwolf' trilogy The setting is a world of eternal winter, where once thrived hot climates and exotic luxury. Saphay, daughter of a subking in the more civilised west, is sent off to marry a leader of the barbaric Jafn, not realising that her own father has arranged for her to be betrayed and abducted on her icy journey. But, escaping her pursuers on the back of a giant whale, Saphay is discovered alive - entombed in an ice-pyramid - by her intended husband, and the marriage proceeds. But, all too soon, she carries a child, causing dark suspicions regarding the infant's true origins...And as her son grows up in wintery exile, it is soon evident that in him is emerging a hero with a very special destiriy. Populated by outlandish creatures and exotic landscapes, this is a luscious, luxurious, colourful epic adventure full of the twists and turns and spellbinding imagination that only Tanith Lee can magically conjure.
