The Darkest Dusk excels in everything Norse fantasy. The landscape, the characterisation, and the brutal display of humanity is stark and painful. The sequel to Cold From the North brings us a continuation of the story without negating everything I loved from book one. The story continues with a rush, like a snowstorm that wants to blind your vision, it disorientates you, it leaves you cold to your very bones and anything can blindside you. D.W. Ross has honed his skill and you can tell the love and devotion that has gone into creating this sprawling epic Norse fantasy. Book two of the Onyxborn Chronicles, The Darkest Dusk and immediately…
Cold From the North will undoubtedly insert D.W. Ross into the fantasy landscape with ease. A fantasy book that has reminded me why I love the genre so much. Ross weaves an atmospheric tale of survival and intrigue.
