Review of THE KING'S SHADOW in Literary Review

Another review of THE KING'S SHADOW, this one in the June issue of Literary Review. It's not available online, but I'll quote the relevant part here: "Yet The King's Shadow, like The Broken King and Womack's two previous books, remains full of atmosphere, menace and lightly-worn learning. Classical influence is evident in the lunar names of King Selenus and his daughter and in the compass directions of the Roman winds; and there are nice, unsettling touches of warped courtliness and chivalry throughout. A darkly disconcerting high fantasy, in the vein of Alan Garner or Susan Cooper, it should appeal to adventurous young readers."
