About the Author
Praise For The War with the Mein…
Praise for David Anthony Durham and The Acacia Trilogy:
“David Anthony Durham has serious chops. I can’t wait to read whatever he writes next."
—George R. R. Martin
“A fascinating world.”
“A big, fat, rich piece of history-flavored fantasy. . . . Imagined with remarkable thoroughness.”
“Gripping. . . . From the first pages of Acacia, Durham demonstrates that he is a master of the fantasy epic.”
—The Washington Post Book World
“Thrilling. . . . Durham’s new world—like our old one—is crawling with wickedly fascinating characters.”
“Transcendent. . . . As fantasy epics go, the ‘Acacia’ trilogy is a direct and worthy descendant of Tolkien.” —Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star
“A truly epic fantasy . . . Superbly written.”
“Something genuinely new. . . . Strong echoes of Homer and Virgil, Tolkien, Norse mythology’s Twilight of the Gods and America’s compromised history as a republic built on slavery fuse into an enthralling, literate and increasingly suspenseful narrative.”
—Kirkus Reviews (starred)
“Never lets up. . . . A very tasty fantasy stew.”
—San Jose Mercury News
“Extraordinary. . . . One of the best books, fantasy or otherwise . . . in recent memory.”
“Excellent. . . . A multi-layered, page-turning series that pushes the envelope of epic fantasy.”
—Contra Costa Times
