“The first book in Escalada’s Faraman Prophecy series introduces readers to a rich world full of political intrigue, powerful magic and a wealth of secrets just waiting to be discovered. Escalada has created a fascinating world, with vibrant scenery and intriguing social hierarchies.”

“The richness of the world is reason enough to immerse yourself in this book. The typical historically based fantasy empire is given a makeover; this is a culture with abundant opportunities for women to wield power, political and otherwise […] The view into the culture of the empire’s military units, especially as they react to, fight, and sometimes buckle under the control of the invaders, is fascinating.”
“Sometimes a book lands in your lap at exactly the right time, and HALLS OF LAW was precisely the kind of book I didn’t realize I needed when I opened the first few pages. I was drawn in by the comforting prose and stayed fully invested because of the characters and world. HALLS OF LAW is a fun, optimistic epic fantasy that proved a welcome change of pace from some of the more grimdark fantasy I’d been reading. Recommended.”
“If you are looking for a new epic fantasy series to sink your reading teeth into, and where you can get in at the very beginning without having to read through a huge pile of doorstop-sized books, HALLS OF LAW is definitely a winner […] Throwing more than a bit of The Handmaid’s Tale into a completely epic fantasy setting gives the story many of its chills, and makes the evil that our good Kerida fights particularly malevolent.”
“The world-building is excellent […] I really enjoyed this and eagerly await the sequel.”
"HALLS OF LAW begins a fresh, engaging new fantasy series set in a world of marvellous texture and magic. Love this one and can't wait for more!"
