The Seventh Veil
available now from Loose Id.
Heidi is a great storyteller. She handles this complex novel with considerable aplomb. The characters of Charles and Timothy, Charles’ brother, Jonathan and the apprentice witch, Madeline move on and off the stage with fluidity. She evokes considerable empathy with the suffering of one of the main characters at the hands of Martin Smith, the evil alchemist. This is definitely a 5 Ravens book.

I was pretty blown away by the depth and reach of this book. The world building is vivid and complex, the characterisation thorough and sympathetic. I felt a whole range of emotions as I was reading from genuine chills to laughter, amazement and sorrow. I'm already anticipating the next in this series and couldn't recommend it highly enough with a grade of 'Excellent'.

It's not often you hear the word epic mentioned in the same breath as erotic, but Heidi Cullinan's The Seventh Veil is an astounding work of fantasy that manages to be both epic and erotic. This is a big story, full of big ideas, complete with an elaborate sense of geography, history, and mythology. It has everything you would expect to find in the first installment of an epic fantasy saga, along with some very progressive ideas regarding gender and sexuality.
