“Whether you’re a fantasy buff or not, you have to admire ace storyteller Abraham’s skill at building plausible alternate worlds, a trade much practiced, but not often so well, ever since the days of Tolkien and the Shire.” Kirkus Reviews
“Abraham builds on The Dragon’s Path to create and sustain a rich, satisfyingly complex epic fantasy.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
