G.R. Lyons is comparable Robin Hobb, Bram Stoker, Mary Shelley and that other hack writer, Charles Dickens or whatever his name is. ;)
She drives her story at a little bit faster of a pace than Robin does, which in my humble opinion makes the story more accessible as a male reader. However, don't misinterpret my words. She still gives a ton of a attention to detail, like Robin, to bring her surroundings and actions to life, which is more of a challenge in this world because it is a period piece, and so for her to describe something as simple as a customary dance or manners like taking a bow the little things that people did differently back then, especially in the language that was specific to that time period, it's pretty incredible. We read a lot of classics and think they're amazing, but they were written during that era so it was no stretch for those authors to create those environments that seem like fairytales to us. You'll feel like your reading a classic, but the author lives today which is what makes G.R. Lyons' writing so impressive. Have fun with it!
