Here's what three fellow authors have to say:
“Helen Lowe writes wonderful stories, yes, but her work also speaks with lyricism to deeper questions of how we treat each other. With lovely prose that brings vivid life to her characters, she creates a universe with people we care about. This is an author with a gift for fantasy.” ~ Nebula Award-winner, Catherine Asaro
“Helen Lowe’s writing moves from strength to strength. Powerful story lines, memorable characters and a vividly imagined world.” ~ Juliet Marillier
"So if you've any fondness for epic fantasy, I highly recommend you give The Wall of Night series a try. I can't wait for the next novel in the series." ~ Courtney Schafer
And yes, I have started writing The Chaos Gate (working title) The Wall of Night Series, Book Four.
Fortresses of shadow and decay
An ancient war
A world where everyone could be an enemy —
and no-one is quite what they seem
A society divided by prejudice, suspicion, and fear
Lost powers and undiscovered secrets
A young untried champion
and a promise that has endured down centuries
— that she should not have to stand alone
