This week the CSFF Blog tour is featuring Chris Walley’s The Shadow and the Night. I started reading it several nights ago and after only a few pages I knew I was going to enjoy this book.
So often anymore, we want the novel to pull us immediately into the action of the story, without taking the necessary time to establish why we should care. Chris Walley takes his time with the characters and the setting so that I feel completely absorbed in the character’s mind and world.
It’s been a long while that a story has taken me into another universe and into the future like this. I can’t wait to get back to this novel and I smile when I open the book because I’m looking forward to going into this story world–a feeling I’ve only experienced with a few novels.
You can read the interesting story behind the publication of his novels here.
