“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

As Fierce as Steel by Christopher Walsh | Other Indie by Ali House

If you’re a fan of epic stories with mythology, politics, interesting characters, and an imaginative world, then the Gold and Steel Saga should be on your reading list.

I’d best compare this book to the Lord of the Rings trilogy (but without the massive amounts of description) or Games of Thrones (but without the massive amount of characters to keep track of). My interest definitely picked up with Marigold’s chapter and didn’t lose any steam from then on. (Minor note: Marigold is not as prominent a character as Orangecloak, the Thieves, or Tryst, but she’s still pretty darn important.)

As Fierce as Steel by Christopher Walsh | Other Indie

An imaginative and eclectic mix of , JRR Tolkien, George RR Martin and… Baz Luhrmann???

I’ll admit I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked up my digital copy of As Fierce as Steel by first-time author Christopher P. Walsh. I knew it was a fantasy genre from Walsh’s stellar campaigning over the last year, and I saw with a quick flip through the pages that the chapter breaks were similar in style to RR Martin (in that, each chapter switches the point-of-view and the character-in-questions name is the default ‘chapter title’). I read all five of the A Song of Ice and Fire books this past year so that slight visual cue alone gave me what I thought was a reasonable expectation of what lay within.

Meet your Fantasy from the Rock team: Christopher Walsh

promo_cover7_webWe spent most of January announcing our Fantasy from the Rock all-star lineup, but without actually reading the stories (and you can’t, not until April 27th!) it’s hard to get to know the authors that are helping make up this epic collection. With that in mind, here’s our interview with Christopher Walsh, author of the Gold and Steel Saga and one of the all-star fantasy authors of this collection!

1. What is your favorite word?
Chris: Palindrome. That was a bit of a thinker. I’ve never thought about what might be my favourite word before. I think ‘palindrome’ is a fun word, though. Say it over a few times in your head. Plus, once you start using the word often, you’ll start looking for palindromes in word and number sequences you see. Continue reading Meet your Fantasy from the Rock team: Christopher Walsh
