Reviews

“To say that Walsh was influenced solely by RR Martin weakens both. As Fierce as Steel is actually much more than that. It has the tone of George RR Martin (that epic feeling that sends chills whenever the characters enter a battle) along with the imagination of JRR Tolkien (taking disparate aspects from the world around them and melding them into a coherent fantasy universe capable of suspending the reader’s disbelief for 700+ pages) and the aesthetics of Baz Luhrmann… yes, Baz Luhrmann. In that he has the ability to mix modern (ish) weaponry like rifles and modern idioms of speech into a fantastical, medieval setting in such a way that feels neither forced nor contrived, much in the way Luhrmann shifted the weapons in Romeo+Juliet”
— Matthew LeDrew,
author of Coral Beach Casefiles.

“Beautifully written, this book is built with vivid images of an astounding fantasy world that is well built with diverse people of both race and sex. It’s clear that this intricate world was carefully planned out through its political point of views and many little details that build its complex and large range of character.”
— Simple Pleasures
