Editorial Reviews


Praise for 2020 SPFBO finalist A Wind from the Wilderness, book 1 of Watchers of Outremer

"I was utterly enthralled and could hardly put it down. An amazing blend of history and fantasy with characters I found fascinating and couldn't get enough of!" ~ Julia, The Fantasy Hive

"This isn't just great low fantasy; it's brilliant historical fiction." ~ Filip, The Fantasy Hive

"A page-turning story, epic in scope." ~ Adam, Fantasy Book Critic

"By turns tragic and triumphant, poignant and joyful, this is ultimately a redemptive read." ~ Lukasz, Fantasy Book Critic

"Rowntree does an outstanding job bringing the ordeals of the first Crusade to full, vibrant life." ~ Fantasy-Faction

"It felt like I was witnessing the scenes in person, standing bewildered as battles took place around me." ~ Lynn's Books

"A deeply layered story that has a lot more to offer than the usual fantasy fare." ~ Nick, Queen's Book Asylum

"What is more gripping than the Crusades? Tragedy, drama, greed, devotion... it's all there. And reader, it's all here, in this book, as well. ...An absolute delight to read in every respect. " ~ Sarah Chorn, Bookworm Blues

"Vivid and lush." ~ Patrick Samphire, author of Shadows of a Dead God

"A fantastic novel and a beautiful way to learn more about the time period." ~ Olivia Atwater, author of Half a Soul

"When a book can punch me in the heart that hard while still inspiring hope and goodness, it deserves all the stars." ~ Eli Hinze, author of Queen of Shades

"A colourful story of love, war, and loyalty" ~ Camillea Reads

"A breathtaking, thrilling, rollercoaster of a ride through period of the First Crusade." ~ Goodreads reviewer

"I need like...a week to recover from this." ~ Goodreads reviewer

About the Author

Suzannah Rowntree lives in a big house in rural Australia with her awesome parents and siblings, reading academic histories of the Crusades and writing historical fantasy fiction that blends folklore and myth with historical fact.
She loves the mythic fantasy of S A Chakraborty, Naomi Novik and Laini Taylor...and if you do too, you might just like the Watchers of Outremer series.
