I have to say I am extremely impressed by Mr Hausladen s writing It is hard to believe this is his first book the richness and complexity of the story and characters is like a fine Cabernet on the palate The characters are compelling and very human they are people you want to love hate and pity This is not your typical fantasy novel where the author concentrates and relies too heavily on action and magical outcomes While Ghosts in the Yew is action filled and magical Mr Hausladen has obviously done his research and brings his high finance background to bear in developing a detailed and complex background that includes socio economic underpinnings and drivers in a world that seems all to realisticI could not put the book down and am impatiently waiting for the next one

I bought this book directly from the author who markets it by going around to conventions in person He s hoping that by the time he reaches the third or fourth book in the series he ll thus have an inbuilt audience I will say that it seems to have done well at getting readers to actually review the book on Goodreads Since it s a first novel I m going to be a bit nitpicky than I otherwise mightWhen political scheming by Prince Barok of the Zoviyan Empire against his possibly evil half brother Prince Yarik backfires horribly the young royal finds himself going into exile Accompanied only by Leger an alcoholic war hero who s been appointed his alsman head servant as a slap in the face Barok finds himself ruling the remote and dilapidated province of Enhedu whose people and the ghosts of the title are less than happy to have himSoon Prince Barok is joined by his one faithful servant Dia a concubine who has her reasons for being grateful to the otherwise less than admirable prince It s about this time that Barok learns a few things about his heritage he wasn t aware of and that his exile might be less coincidence than fateor someone s plan Now Barok must somehow restore Enhedu s prosperity and prevent its people from being forced into slaveryThere are four first person narrators Barok Leger Dia and Geart Prince Barok s former bodyguard who spends much of this volume in prison or slavery This can get confusing as most of them have very similar narration styles Barok s distinct at first until his personality changes With the switching back and forth it takes a fair amount of time before it s clear where the plot is goinguite a bit of time is spent on the community building part of the plotline the author s researched well but this does reuire some patience on the readers part The volume is illustrated some maps some scene setting photographs and diagrams and a couple of handwritten notes that are a bit hard to read especially the one that is supposed to be hard to readI do see a lot of potential here but this was perhaps a little ambitious for a first book I noticed a tendency to overdo the negative ualities of some of the villains for example A neighboring lord isn t just greedy he s fat ugly balding rude and illiterate A meddlesome woman isn t just self righteous and judgmental she s also fat lazy nagging frigid and either doesn t understand how pregnancy works or tells easily spotted lies about itThis is also a book that could use a glossary There s three different military units that all have names that start with H for example and that took some leafing back and forth to figure out which one was whichThis is a relatively low magic setting at least until near the end when one of the characters really gets to cut loose In the final chapters we also get a few details that make the religious struggle not uite as simplistic as sky father religion bad earth mother religion good but it s a very small caveat that is likely to be important in later booksWhile it s an okay read I would need to see some strong improvement in the next volume before recommending the series
