The worlds created for her novels blend the familiar and the alien with a deft hand, conviction and detail convincing the reader not just of the physicality of the world the characters move through, but of its history and politics. There is a genuine sense of scale to the The Immortal Prince, a breadth and scale that suggests a broader world beyond that we have seen in the story. --The SF Site Jennifer Fallon is the author of 17 bestselling fantasy and science fiction novels, 4 different series, numerous short stories, and has written official tie-in stories for both Stargate SG1 and Zorro.
