Editorial Reviews


"In this smashingly good debut, ... (Lindley) has fun with fantasy tropes while also living up to their grandeur." - Kirkus Reviews

"The different beings were just wonderful, & the quest a serious one." - J. Snook, Medium

"If you've devoured The Lord of the Rings series and need a new epic fantasy fix, I think Mannethorn's Key may be exactly what the doctor ordered. There is so much world building and creativity within these pages that you can't help but soak it all up...this is an impressive offering by Lindley." - Reader's Favorite

"With the world turning in a slightly askew fashion the time is ripe for another prolonged escape epic - that is precisely what Simon has provided. His use of the English language is lyrical, he manages to create different worlds without losing the reader in the process of moving from this one to the story's and he has that gift of shaping an epic fantasy adventure with humor - a trait that provides comic relief without stepping outside the progress of the story. His characters maybe fanciful but they are so well sculpted that we can easily visualize them and identify with their particular paths through the story." - San Francisco Review of Books

"Fans of the epic fantasy genre who appreciate complex, well-detailed and absorbing quest sagas will find Mannethorn's Key the perfect choice. One pleasure is its ability to depict two very different worlds and purposes and bring them together in unexpected ways. Readers of epic fantasy will relish the detail and world Simon Lindley has crafted here, which sets the stage for further books in the Key of Life trilogy." - D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

From the Author

It has taken me over fifteen years to find my way to Drageverden, a world of varied peoples and nations, experienced through the misadventures of Bartholomew Waxman. A journey fraught with challenges and rewards, the result of which, I hope, is an experience that not only celebrates the fantasy genre but adds a little dark humor, never taking itself too seriously, while giving homage to the greats. May you laugh, cry, and be swept away on the wings of drakehawks, and may the land give you the same reward and satisfaction that it has provided me.
