Praise from Kirkus Reviews for Delphys Rising

cropped-kip-two-books-beach.jpgI was excited to receive a positive nod for my newest novel, Delphys Rising, from Kirkus Reviews. Here are some of the highlights:

 
“Koelsch (Wendall’s Lullaby, 2017) narrates in a simple style, deftly moving between characters to weave an intricate story of personal growth, relationships (both human and interspecies), and political and military intrigue. The protagonists and supporting cast are all given weight. Although individually this makes them stand out less, it grants the tale a holistic depth to match the gravitas of its subject matter. The dispersed character focus may rob events of some of their urgency, yet the plot, without ever becoming predictable, gains enough momentum to pull readers in.
 
An unusual tale in which the standard environmental bent gets unexpected complexity.”
