“Alan Baxter is an accomplished storyteller who ably evokes magic and menace.” – Laird Barron, author of Swift to Chase.
“Alan Baxter’s fiction is dark, disturbing, hard-hitting and heart-breakingly honest. He reflects on worlds known and unknown with compassion, and demonstrates an almost second-sight into human behaviour.” – Kaaron Warren, Shirley Jackson Award-winner and author of The Grief Hole.
“…a major new writer.” – The West Australian newspaper.
“…fantastic storytelling in the vein of Neil Gaiman or Alan Moore, but with a merciless black streak…” – Spooktapes
“Alan Baxter has joined the ranks of talented authors who seek to push the boundaries of fantasy fiction… gritty, graphic and edge-of-seat thrilling… Not for the faint-hearted. Entertaining, sexy and intense…” – The Manly Daily
“…if Stephen King and Jim Butcher ever had a love child then it would be Alan Baxter.” – Matthew Summers at Smash Dragons
“Alan’s work is reminiscent of that of Clive Barker and Jim C. Hines, but with a unique flavour all of its own.” – Angela Slatter, World Fantasy Award, British Fantasy Award, and Aurealis Award winning author of Sourdough & Other Stories and many more.
“Baxter draws you along a knife’s edge of tension from the first page to the last, leaving your heart thumping and sweat on your brow.” – Midwest Book Review
“Kick ASS!” – Sean Williams, New York Times #1 Bestselling author.
“Alan Baxter delivers a heady mix of magic, monsters and bloody fights to the death. Nobody does kick-ass brutality like Baxter.” – Greig Beck, Internationally bestselling author.
“I would highly recommend Bound to anyone who likes a good supernatural action thriller.” – Traci Harding, bestselling author of The Ancient Future, The Timekeepers and many more.
“I had a lot of fun reading Alan Baxter’s Bound… It’s a teeth-gnashing, shadow-chasing, magesign-riddled sexy beast of a thing!” – Margo Lanagan, multiple Award-winning author of Sea Hearts and Tender Morsels.
“I was completely blown away when I read this… The world he’s built rivals anything by Jim Butcher – actually I think he’s a better writer than Butcher: his prose is fluid and engrossing, and he balances action with pace and at the same time provides wonderful vignettes of really quality descriptive prose.” – Kylie Chan, author of the Dark Heavens, Journey to Wudang and Celestial Battle trilogies.
“It’s a relentless whirlwind of magic, sex, and violence… a rollercoaster of gritty magic, evocative settings, and brutal action.” – Aurealis Magazine.
