"Overall, an excellent fantasy debut."Clockwork Reviews
"I would be hard pressed to find someone who would not enjoy [Giant Thief] ... If you get fed up of this book, you have got fed up of life."
"It's always a bit of chance-taking to pick
up an author you are not familiar with when it comes to finding
something to read. In this case I am glad I did ... Definitely recommended."
Writing, Design and Life
pace is fantastic and the action takes off right from the start ... an
endearing protagonist, a host of excellent supporting characters, a less than
communicative giant, and most importantly a unique story, are just some of the
elements that make this book worth reading."
Morpheus Tales #15
wryly amusing and entertaining read that also proves to be more thought
provoking than might originally seem to be the case."
Easie Damasco goes he leaves a trail of destruction and angry people eager to
lynch him. Fortunately I felt just the opposite, and I hope this charming
lawbreaker will be back for some sequels."
"Tallerman has created a charming scoundrel in Easie Damasco; one whose company I would definitely seek out again."Cybermage
like Giant Thief a lot. It is fast paced
fun with a lot of action and just what I needed."Falcata Times
story that sets up for a series remarkably well. Great stuff."A Fantastical Librarian
you're up for a fun, fast-paced adventure featuring rogues, giants and lots of
fighting, you won't want to miss it!"My Awful Reviews
"Giant Thief was a fun roller coaster. I
dug into it, thought it was predictable, and then the author hit me with
something unexpected. I read on. The story felt predictable again, and whack!,
another unexpected turn. Clever, ain't he?"Fantasy Nibbles
really is a fun read. Saltlick is adorable, I want one! Itís straightforward,
linear, smack down the middle fast-paced goodness."Gill Polack
Tallerman is not an author with whom I was familiar before reading this book
... I'd be willing to be his name will become more prominent if he writes more
books like this one."
"Giant Thief shows that Tallerman has a lot of promise as a novelist and I look forward to what he does next."
"I loved this book!"
Theaker's Quarterly Fiction #40
"If you can do anything, you might as well do the most entertaining thing, and that's the route this book takes. David Tallerman will almost certainly go on to write more complex, substantial novels, but I hope he gives us a few more like this first."
The Guilded Earlobe
"A light, fun Fantasy novel, with a likeable, yet roguish lead."
Theresa Derwin's Terror-Tree
"With more cart and two legged chases than Iíve seen in recent fantasy
novels, a pace that rattles along and a healthy helping of humour
throughout, Giant Thief is worth every penny.
The Village Smith
""Who can go wrong with a book about an incorrigible thief whose rapier wit is stronger than his backbone."
