entertaining as it is informative."

"This really is a magnificent book. It was written with the mind of a lawyer and the pen of a poet.” 17-year-old reader
"Magnificent! The whole thing reads aloud so well, like a sung ballad in its words and cadence. Amazing." Mother of three
“Well, as much as I loved the Crown and Covenant Trilogy and thought they were written well, this new book is on a different planet. I love it!” 11-year-old reader
"What a great yarn! The story thread worked very well, not predictably, and with enough twists and turns to keep attention riveted. It read great, both aloud and silently. I applaud the flow and cadence."
"Your descriptiveness is wonderfully done and strikes the mark, providing depth and nuance, and immersing the reader in a certain beauty of word and mind-picture."
