The Daily Telegraph reviews Wall of Spears

The Daily Telegraph fantasy reviewer Janet Hughes gave me 4.5 stars out of 5 this week for Wall Of Spears - here's her review, for those who didn't get Tuesday's Daily Telegraph!

WALL  of Spears is the third and final book in Duncan Lay’s epic Empire Of Bones series. It provides an engaging, action-packed conclusion to this excellent trilogy, deftly combining intrigue and magic with brilliantly realistic battle scenes. The characters are enmeshed in a complex tapestry of honour and love, scheming and betrayal, against the backdrop of an entire culture’s fight for the right to freedom. At the same time, the plot never loses sight of the personal motivations, strengths and weaknesses of each character. Lay has gone from strength to strength in this series, vividly imagining a world of great complexity, where gritty historical reality meets fantasy. -The battle between the two human tribes is complicated not only by the war between human and elf, but by the conflicting desires and romantic entanglements of the major characters. Lovers of fantasy will surely enjoy this final book in the series.
