The Innocent Mage is coming to America!

 [Posted 21-Aug-2007]

September 1st is getting closer ... and that's when The Innocent Mage hits US bookshelves and online retailers.

Publishers' Weekly says: "This complex story accelerates nicely towards a brutal cliffhanger finale. Hints of an epic confrontation to come will leave readers eager to find out ... where Asher's destiny leads."

Romantic Times says: "Talk about making a splashing debut! Miller has created a vivid, rich world populated with characters whose lives are set on a precipice in the first book of the series Kingmaker, Kingbreaker. Epic in feel, this opening chapter sets the stage for a potentially apocalyptic collision. There's a cliffhanger ending -- thankfully the conclusion to this enthralling drama is out next month."

Wow. I'm so pleased they liked it ...
