If you haven’t read Persia Blues writer Dara Naraghi’s piece on Bleeding Cool from this past week you should by all means.
Persia Blues is according to Naraghi, “best described as a fusion of historical fantasy and modern social commentary, featuring a strong-willed young Iranian female protagonist.”
Sounds pretty interesting, doesn’t it?
Here’s what folks across the web are saying about it:
“it’s good — it’s very good”
“Naragahi and Bowman structure their tale in a meaningful manner, jumping back and forth between stories without disrupting the flow or hampering intelligibility.”
“There’s a huge treat to be found inside the pages of Persia Blues.”
“Gleefully melding past and present, fact and fiction, this introductory volume revels in exploiting reader expectation and confusion to craft a beguiling multi-layered tale about family, responsibility, guilt, oppression and the hunger for independence that carries the reader along, promoting wonder and second-guessing whilst weaving a tapestry of mystery…Engaging, rewarding and just plain refreshingly different, Persia Blues looks set to become a classic in years to come.”
