I was introduced to Susan Gourley’s books when I picked up an advance reader copy, an uncorrected proof, at a charity event. Despite typos and other mistakes, the tale riveted me and captured my imagination. The Keepers of Sulbreth, the first of The Futhark Chronicles (a four-book series at time of writing) is an inspired fantasy of magic and demons, personal foibles and political problems in the fictional kingdom of Futhark. Not only did the tale progress in a way that kept me turning the pages and setting down the book only reluctantly, but I found myself mulling what had occurred to date and wondering what would happen next.
Now that I’ve had a taste of Susan Gourley’s work, I want more!
Is Fantasy a genre you read? Are you drawn to magic and mythical creatures?
