Comments Of Weft and Weave

  • Helen White

    First a disclosure. I have to admit that in order to fully appreciate this book I did have some dialogue with the author on Twitter. Out of this conversation I can confirm my view that the reader needs to pay close attention to detail and exercise imagination when reading this book. I would recommend reading at a leisurely pace, taking time to backtrack and re-read if this seems necessary. This will reward the reader immeasurably, and allow them to fully appreciate the poetic and singing prose, [...]

    The first book, Leiyatels Embrace, was full of decaying splendour that took my breath away. It asked me to walk the paths and roads and poke my head into the dusty, sometimes ruined buildings and for all that enjoyment of poking through the mysterious crumbling edifices, like the the child I still am - running around every ruined castle and monastery I can find, something else gnawed at me. Where was I, when, how and why? At first Leiyatels Embrace was in a time and place I was familiar with and [...]


  • Regina Puckett

    Author, Clive Johnson, once again takes the reader on a long journey in search of answers in this beautifully written tale of Speculative Fiction. After reading his first novel, Leiyatel’s Embrace, I had no doubt Mr. Johnson has had a long love affair with the written word, and I was truly impressed with the Dica’s Series first novel’s rich style and prose. I was a little nervous for Mr. Johnson since Leiyate’s Embrace had already raised the bar so high for the next two books in this ser [...]

    This isn't my normal genre but Mr. Johnson writes so beautifully it is a joy to read his books. I was transported to another realm and immersed in the quest of these characters. I look forward to continuing this series.


  • Mackenzie Brown

    I am a big fan of Clive Johnson's writing and in particular his Dica series. For me they're something to savour and like a good wine they never disappoint. Clive has created a world where the action moves at a sedate pace, but the wonderful writing washes over you and you're transported to the realm of Dica, a place the author has constructed with great love and care. Nephryl who is the central character from the first two books is somebody I bonded with and cared deeply for and this I can once [...]
