    1. There’s no better way to introduce a novice to the setting of Jeffrey Barlough’s Western Lights series than to quote liberally from the “About the Series” section at the end of the book:Imagine a world in which the last Ice Age never ended.With much of her territory locked up with ice, medieval England was forced to seek a more habitable clime for her growing population. From every port, merchant-adventurers in their tall ships set sail to scour the earth for a new home. Amongst the plac [...]

    2. I was led to believe that the "Western Lights" series would be a kind of Lovecraft meets Dickens mashup. Instead, I saw the book as Anthony Trollope--to be prefered in tone to Dickens, in my view--crossed with pleistocene Godzilla-style attacks. There is also a fairy tale magic aspect, and as an addendum, strangely yet wonderfully, a Beatrix Potter pastiche. The enjoyment lies in the way the story unfolds, and less in what unfolds. I dislike the star rating system, because I would certainly reco [...]

    3. Another excellent volume in the Western Lights series. This tale was more of a pleasant storybook tale, unlike the other three volumes I've read so far. This story, while again having a cast of lovable characters, did not have as 'dark' an aspect as the other three books I have.Barlough is definitely a must read for anyone who loves a somewhat Dickensian tale. I'm not sure I can completely agree with the Lovecraftian reference (at least with regard to this book) but I can see some other volumes. [...]

    4. I thought this book was very entertaining as are all of Mr. Barlough's books. It is always enjoyable to read his works as they are most thoroughly thought out. Thank you for another wonderful book. I'm now reading "What I found at Hoole", and from the beginning, I know I'm in for quite a treat!
