    “Though the novel is dense in plot and characters, debut novelist Rice maintains a surprisingly sharp focus… The final act boosts the action, introduces menaces, and involves a few shocking revelations… Brimming with well-defined details and characters; augmented by bountiful enthusiasm and spirit." – Kirkus Reviews (full review at: EVE OF SNOWS by L. James Rice | Kirkus Reviews)

    Prayers hold the power of magic, and Eliles is the most accomplished postulant to study for the priesthood in generations. But her prayers are a lie. She doesn’t channel energy from the gods; she wields unholy feral magic, punishable by death. She hides her secret in the heart of the church, the monastery of Istinjoln. Priests celebrate her prayers in public but mock her behind her back, and all she wants is out.

    Eliles plans her escape from the monastery on the upcoming Eve of Snows festival, the day she takes her vows. When her closest friend returns from the frozen wilds draped over his horse, a sealed scroll lashed to his body, she’s drawn into a conspiracy decades in the planning.

    Lord Priest Ulrikt intends to open a Celestial Gate to the gods and usurp rule from the clans in a holy war, crowning himself King Priest. However, if the gate reaches the hells instead of the heavens, it unleashes a hoard of Shadows bent on genocide.

    On the Eve of Snows, come heavens or hells, war will rage.

    Book giveaway for Eve of Snows by L. James Rice Jun 03-Jun 15, 2018

    And a review from a familiar gent in this same forum.

    Eve of Snows
    is an epic fantasy with high magic and powerful monsters. It's a sprawling tale, but author L. James Rice manages the large cast well, and all paths eventually cross in a convincing manner. The creatures in the story are original and terrifying, and the heroes are always stretched to their limits to meet the challenge. The magic in this world is believable and exciting to watch, the characters are engaging, and the action scenes are always clear and well handled. If you love epic fantasy, you'll want to read Eve of Snows. – Ellis L. Knox, author of Goblins at the Gates
