Video Review


“An interesting and fast-paced prelude to the large "Gathering Storm", this is action packed and should appeal to most age groups. There's obviously a lot that's hinted at and left unexplained but this is clearly intentional as the book is very much a prelude to the following volume (hence the title of course). Recommended for those who like urban / contemporary fantasy.”

Prelude to a Storm

Amazon reviewer
“Well what can I say? I think I covered how impressed and inspired I was with Cecily Magnon’s writing style when I reviewed the run-up to this; Prelude to a Storm. The only real difference here is that it did not surprise me; I had hyped this book up in my mind and was keen to fall into its dreamy, fantasy world of angels, demons and a host of all things magical.”
