A couple of reviews...

First up is a review of Pax Britannia: Blood Royal, over at Total Sci-Fi Online. I particularly liked this bit...

"...once Quicksilver and his friends get into combat, the action sequences are told with a directorial eye."

And then there's one of Pax Britannia: Leviathan Rising, over at Pornokitsch, which includes such choice comments as...

"Most importantly, Leviathan Rising, above everything else, is fun. Deliriously so. Every page is infected with a wonderful sense of joy."

And...

"Being over-the-top is commonplace, but being genuinely entertaining is rare - the difference between telling a dirty joke and being Bill Hicks... the author deftly combines punchy dialogue with lurid description; painting a wonderful, exotic world and then populating it with sharp heroes, sinister villains and horrendous beasties."

My favourite bit of the review: "But, you know what? Sometimes I want a dashing hero, a swooning lady, some snappy banter and a Big F****ing Squid."
:-D

Actually you make a very good point there.

If only they'd put that one on a cover to promote the series...
