When I finished the novel I closed the book, sat in silence a moment, turned it back over to look at the front cover, and said "Holy s#$%" in admiration of the author's work. It breaks genre rules with finesse. It gets you into an unfamiliar but believable world impressively quickly. This is a delightful book.

about THE INTERPRETER'S TALE

Slide

A brilliant, richly layered adventure [...] The mixture of carefully considered language and customs (that feel “authentic”) with personal conversation (that seems very contemporary), invites the reader to slip into this world like an inhabitant rather than a voyeur. For me, it was seamless. [...] This is a long book, and every moment of it was a joy to read.

This is a book I will read again. Some morning, when perhaps it is dark, or I just want to feel a bit of magic in my life, I will pick this little book up and read it again. Any author who can create a new world and cause me to want to live and breathe within it, is worthy of my admiration and time. E.M. Epps has done this for me in this wonderful book.

about YOU MADE MY HEART A HUNTER

It's hard to say what I loved most about the book: The elegant style? The dry wit? Or the slow deepening of the characters (not only Lhennuen's)? The fact that nothing is painted just black or white? The wonderful minor characters? Or that, like in real life, not every secret is solved? Or, or, or...?
Who cares? Go ahead, read it!! You'll find your own reason to adore this book!

...what really makes this story stand out is the quality of the writing. Epps has a clear, lyrical style that presents simple scenes with deep power. More importantly, she does an excellent job at drawing, clear, flawed, but sympathetic characters.

The Interpreter's Tale is a crackling good story, with crisp, clean, relatable characters, who struggle with issues both quotidian and fantastical, a plot that keeps you moving, and enough adventure + a sloooowly evolving romance to satisfy.

about THE INTERPRETER'S TALE

Slide

It's a complex, many layered work of fiction that deals with everything from politics, family relationships, and cultural expectations. [...] This fantasy is for readers who enjoy the journey as much as the destination and I highly recommend it.

It has been a long time since I have felt so engaged with the characters in a fantasy and so concerned with their welfare. This world building is excellent from costumes to social mores and encompasses alliance and betrayal and a fair dose of sword and sorcery.

about COMPLETE WITH SHIPWRECK

Slide

A friend gave me this book, and it languished for weeks on the 'to be read' pile. Don't do that. Read it as soon as you can, clear an afternoon so that you can wallow in that most unusual of readers joys, a story that gently and steadily reels you in.

about THE INTERPRETER'S TALE

Slide

Yes, there are bandits, betrayals, and, yes, actual and metaphorical shipwreck, but this book is also about the connections of the heart. [...] I love these people--even the villains--and found myself moved countless times to smiles, laughter, worry, and tears. They are people I want to spend more time with.
