Local author Kura Carpenter’s engrossing urban fantasy novel, The Kingfisher’s Debt, has been reviewed by The Reader – the Bookseller’s New Zealand Blog.
And what did they think? Here’s just a snippet:
“Reading The Kingfisher’s Debt took me on a wild romp around Dunedin to many places I have been to, but after reading this Urban Fantasy I will look and think differently about these familiar places.
Carpenter’s crisp descriptive writing is delightful and I could mentally picture many places she includes in the novel. ‘Their vivid dark blooms a tangle of untrimmed canes. The state of the roses, like the cars filling every space along Pitt Street, indicated this neighbourhood was primarily rental properties.’ The cover of the book is stunning and inviting, with appropriate photos cleverly aligned in the kingfisher photo.”
