"Ryan is a new fantasy author destined to make his mark on the genre. His debut novel, Blood Song, certainly has it all: great coming-of-age tale, compelling character and a fast-paced plot. If his first book is any indication of things to come, then all fantasy readers should rejoice."--Michael J. Sullivan, author of the Riyria Revelations series "Fans of broadscale epic fantasy along the lines of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series and George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire novels should find this debut much to their liking."--Library Journal "Just impossible to put down...I had to read it ASAP and to reread it immediately on finishing, as I could not part from the wonderful universe the author created."--Fantasy Book Critic "Ryan hits all the high notes of epic fantasy--a gritty setting, ancient magics, ruthless intrigue, divided loyalties and bloody action...[A] promising debut."--Publishers Weekly "Deftly and originally executed...A page-turner."--Booklist "Ryan's style is somewhat relaxed and paced extremely well...[Blood Song is] like the love child of Patrick Rothfuss and Joe Abercrombie writing the story of Jon Snow (of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire) in the Night's Watch...A top contender for most impressive debut of the year. It is a thick, meaty novel of substance...A powerful epic that, while ending with a sense of closure, hints at more to come."--SFFWorld.com
