Barbara Ann Wright writes fantasy and science fiction novels and short stories when not adding to her enormous book collection or ranting on her blog. Her short fiction has appeared twice in Crossed Genres Magazine and once made Tangent Online's recommended reading list. Her first and third novels, The Pyramid Waltz and A Kingdom Lost, won the 2013 Rainbow Award for Best Lesbian Fantasy and the 2014 Rainbow Award for Best Lesbian Romantic Fantasy. The Pyramid Waltz was also one of Tor.com's Reviewer's Choice books of 2012 and was a 2012 Foreword Review Book of the Year Award Finalist as well as a Golden Crown Award finalist. She is a member of Broad Universe and the Outer Alliance and helped create Writer's Ink in Houston. She is also a member of the Round Rock Writers Guild and the Austin Speed-Writing Challenge.She is married and has an army of pets. Her writing career can be boiled down to two points: when her mother bought her a typewriter in the sixth grade and when she took second place in the Isaac Asimov Award for Undergraduate Excellence in Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing in 2004. One gave her the means to write and the other gave her the confidence to keep going. Believing in oneself, in her opinion, is the most important thing a person can do.

The world building was pretty well done and the characters - and there were many - were, for the most part, interesting. I'd definitely pick up the next in the seque...

Lady Vikings, monsters and magic. What’s not to like? I don't often go for fantasy novels, but I'm certainly glad I gave this one a shot. Wright did a phenomenal job with her world-building and character development, even if towards the end the massive amount of conflict became a bit jumbled and o...

Best lesfic fantasy I've read (or tried to) to this date. Looking at it from a bigger picture though, there's a lot of space to improve in the future.That said, I like how the author doesn't push that 'lesfic' part into reader's face, that's mistake (for me) some other writer'd often do - try too ha...
