Day 2 - Release Day at Xpresso Reads!! Dream Casting LAST BASTION

Xpresso ReadsGiselle has been a...uh....passionate supporter (*cough* rabid stalker *cough*) since she read THE FIRST DAYS.  She's an avid reader and well-known blogger and has been a big pusher of all things Rhiannon Frater.  I  have often added books she's positively reveiwed to my "to read" list so I was very happy that she counts herself as a fan.

From a recent blog I wrote:
Oh, hell. Let's be frank. If there is a cult of Rhiannon Frater, Giselle started it and is the high priestess. She's a very ardent fan and is a huge supporter of my writing. I'm very grateful to her for her ardent support and honest reviews of my work (she was a test reader for THE LAST BASTION OF THE LIVING and kicked me in the teeth more than once when I screwed something up).

Giselle got an early look at the novel and gave me a lot of feedback that helped shape the narrative into a much stronger story. I am very grateful for her input.  She was nitpicky as hell, which is exactly what a test reader should be. 

Giselle's early review on Goodreads (after reading the rough draft) garnered a lot of attention.  Here it is for your viewing pleasure:

Holy shit! This. Was. Incredibly. Insane. Rhiannon really outdid herself with this one. It's fascinating, definitely unique, and completely blew my mind.

I won't write a full review now. I'll wait til I read the finished product but I can promise you this is absolutely brilliant and like nothing you've read before. She takes zombies to a whole new, unimaginable level, adds in some romance, intrigue, and - as usual - excellent characters! GAH. My god I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVED it. Do you hear me? THIS IS FUCKING AMAZING.

This... THIS is why I love to read. I breathe for books like this.
She has now written a full review of the novel that you can read at Xpresso Read here.
Also, per her request, I created a "dream cast" for the novel.  Check out my picks, and suggest your own.
