During the day i work as a doctor in intensive care, twiddling ventilators and generally sorting out sick patients...but at night...? At night i tap to ridiculously late hours on my PC crafting stories of fantastic worlds and awesome magic.
Day job pays the bills though...

My main genres are epic fantasy and YA sci-fi, although I've had steampunk stories published in antholgies also.

Reviews of Darkness Rising 1: Chained by Ross Kitson

crpgnut reviewed on March 6, 2014

I agree with the other reviewers. This is a well told novel and all of the characters have real feelings that sometimes conflict. There is an interesting use of typical monsters in slightly atypical roles. A spellcasting ghast, an undead ogre-mage, etc. Lots of neat ideas.

Enjoyed this fantasy book quite a lot - there are a lot of characters but it is coming together nicely. Nice to read a fantasy that is not the usual dragons/orcs/elves. The worldbuilding was effective and interesting. The lead character is good - am intrigued at her story and thinking there is a lot more to learn about her. Am interested enough to want to keep reading so have just purchased the next book in the series. Recommended.

Amazing. I love the characters and the world and can't wait to read more. The only disappointment was not being able to dive into the next book right now!

A wonderful start to what could be a great series. Lots of characters and good plot development. I only hope that it doesn't become to cumbersome and lose direction. I eagerly await the next installment.
