    Terrific Fantasy Intrigue and Adventure

    Readers familiar with Gil Stack's forays into historical fantasy, mystery, horror, westerns and more will be as pleased as I was to learn that yes, he can do epic fantasy just as well. Winterhaven is a master stroke combining the large cast of "Game of Thrones" with the depth and stakes of a literary epic-fantasy. Yet the action is crisp, spiced with the plot-twists and surprises of a much lighter theme which still fits the world he has created in such powerful, convincing detail. The key distinction of Winterhaven is that Stack has a cast of characters so much more likable and admirable than some of the other fare we've been seeing. Human flaws, mistakes, and yes a few truly evil villains are here, but you can believe in so many terrific individuals, each with a fully realized background and developed character traits. It comes together in a tale that is truly epic yet cinematic and engaging. It takes time to read such grand fantasy, but epic fans will have no complaints; in fact, you'll cry out for the sequel as soon as you finish. Want.

    An immersive, mythical, medieval-esque experience

    Gilbert M. Stack's Winterhaven Book 1 is classic story telling and world building where the duchies and people come alive right under one's nose without even realizing it. The plot is a complex one that doesn't rush itself, whose political and character threads are juggled with consummate precision and dexterity. The setting is reminiscent of medieval Europe, but the supernatural also lurks herein, which only heightens the mysticism of this world where things like 'the draal' are real, and shouldn't be taken lightly. The players are thoroughly developed...and believable. And that might be what strikes the chord the most--is that Stack's Winterhaven world seems so real. This story isn't to be read in a rush; it's immersive--a slow-roasted dinner versus a hot-pocket. Savor it as such.
