Word From Publisher’s Weekly…

Never Knew Another 
J.M. McDermott, Night Shade (www.nightshadebooks.com), $14.99 trade paper (240p) ISBN 978-1-59780-215-4

This well-wrought fantasy trilogy launch maps the boundaries and sensibilities of Dogsland, a quasi-medieval domain that is hostile to any resident tainted by demon blood. McDermott (Last Dragon) evokes the lifestyles, politics, and attitudes of the realm through the experiences of three half-demons trying to go about their business unobtrusively: Jona, a dispossessed lord working as a noble’s guard; Rachel Nolander, a cleaning maid living with her thuggish fully human brother; and Salvatore, a thief whose activities threaten to call attention to the unsavory activities of Jona’s employer. Paths cross randomly and soon interesting connections develop among the characters. McDermott leaves many questions open, including the identities of the tale’s wolfskin-wearing narrators, and readers will be eager to return to Dogsland in hope of finding answers

  1. I'm such a terrible fan – I begged an early release from you, and then didn't even read it before it came out! I have 2 physical copies in the mail to make up for my failure ;P My excitement is HUGE.
