I’ve just finished reading The Kingfisher’s Debt, an urban fantasy novel by Dunedin-based New Zealand author, Kura Carpenter.
This story quickly wove its magic on me, drawing me in as the tale unfurled as if the central character was reaching out from the pages and weaving one of her spells on me, as the reader, until I was trapped and just couldn’t put it down.
Set in Dunedin at the bottom of New Zealand’s South Island, this is urban fantasy shaped by a master of the craft. Kura Carpenter’s command of words and language along with her ability to weave an entrancing tale held me spellbound until the very end – and what an ending it was.
This is a great read by a master storyteller. Highly recommended.
