Overall, The Withered King is an impressive debut that any reader of speculative fiction should enjoy.
Paperbacks and Pinot
Straight off the bat, this is a whirlwind of a book, itís colourful, imaginative, with great characters and world building.
So hop aboard. It's a science fantasy epic that bursts with originality. It is new, it is fresh, and it makes the imagination soar. In short, this is not something you've read before.
Witty and Sarcastic Book Club
The story read a bit like a video game- and thereís absolutely nothing wrong with that. It was a fun, fast book, full of action beats. It was also surprisingly introspective and deep. As entertaining as it was, this is ultimately a book about second chances. I found it highly enjoyable.
Pyles of Books
Victoria does a fantastic job with painting an epic science fantasy world that encompasses so much of nerd culture. Thereís a very modern setting that seems out of place here, but actually grounds the world, while still being amidst sci fi and fantastical marvels.
Diane Morrison Fiction
Itís a breath of fresh air in a literary market thatís currently enamoured of ďgrim-for-grimís-sake.Ē I am invested in this universe and definitely look forward to any future books in the Tempest Blades series!
