What You Tolkien About

Praise for The Ming Storm

“It’s a fast-paced fantasy, and I had so much fun reading it! My absolute favorite part is that the author has made this book feel so authentic, with little author notes, explaining certain traditions, details, characters, items. Great job!”

Wandering Through the Pages


Assassin’s Creed: The Ming Storm might be based upon a video game, but it felt like a book that was purely its own creation. It’s a book that cares more about crafting a living breathing world, filled with characters that have a lot of depth, who the readers can come to understand.”
