First review of Fragments of a Broken Land: Valarl Undead is out — from Alan Baxter on Goodreads:
This deep dark fantasy novel is really quite an achievement by the author. It’s a narrative that is complex and fascinating and demands the reader’s attention. That’s not to say it’s hard to read, but the complexity of ideas is quite staggering and the writing fluid and powerful. Hood has managed something very different with this book and I highly recommend it.
