Editorial Reviews

Review

"...hilarious, extraordinary writing...[that]reminds me of James Branch Cabell [and] Italo Calvino...left me gasping for more." -- Martin Olson, novelist, screenwrither, producer (Penn and Teller's Sin City Spectacular)

"A grand story, expertly written. The comparison to Cabel is apt." -- George Zebrowski, John W. Campbell award winner for Brute Orbits

"Ron Miller has a startling dramatic range..." -- Stephen Hickman, author of The Lemurian Stone

"Ron Miller is unfairly talented" -- Sir Arthur C Clarke

"Ron is unfairly talented! I expect he'll get fed up with being called the new J.B. Cabell." -- Sir Arthur C. Clarke

"Very Highly Recommended" -- Midwest Book Review

Format: Audio Cassette
I'm about halfway through the audio adaptation of Bradamant and I must say that it's one of the best I've ever listened to. It's more like listening to a movie with your eyes shut than the usual audio book, where one voice is reading the book to you. Although a narrator reads the story, different actors take the parts of the character's voices. With the addition of sound effects, the result is a very rich, very realistic experience. Highly recommended!

Format: CD-ROM
Ron Miller has given us a real treat! From white knuckle action and magical adventure to the highest ideals of chivalry and downright lust, BRADAMANT has it all. And it's presented in a richly literate prose reminiscent of Sir Walter Scott but doused with a wicked sense of humor. Don't miss out on this modern classic!!

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on January 9, 2001
Format: Paperback
Bradamant is a rarity. A female knight in service to the Emperor Charlemagne. A respected and feared warrior knight, she is also a young woman coming of age and struggling with her beliefs. She is a lover torn between the enemy knight she loves and her devotion to her king. Fearless and ruthless on the battlefield, Bradamant is vulnerable and confused in love. With Bradamant: The Iron Tempest, Ron Miller has crafted a very highly recommended, classic medieval adventure tale of chivalry, humor, magic, treachery, and romance -- all from the perspective of a woman warrior holding her own in a male-dominated age of violence, intrigue, and treachery.

A brilliant book destined to become a classic. Undoubtedly the best new fantasy novel of the past decade. I have read the book twice and plan to order the audio edition as soon as possible. I recommend this book without reservation--it's a must-read.

Format: Paperback
This is an absolutely brilliant book, destined surely to be a modern classic. I can't think of anything to compare it to, it is so rich in every quality. Characters that are at one and the same time incredible and human, action that is over the top yet described as though it were the most natural thing in the world. What's really surprising is that the book is funny--I laughed out loud many times. If Bradamant doesn't win the World Fantasy Award this next year, I can't imagine what it would take to do so.
