Emily at the wanderingthoughbooksandwords blog: "I adored every single page of this beautifully written novel, I found my self hooked from the first page by the intriguing landscape and the fabulous characters."
David Fry on Amazon: "The characters are interesting...which makes the action in the second half all that more enjoyable."
Carrie de Carteret on Amazon: "a fast-moving plot which, although set in a fantasy world, evidences [Watkinson's] knowledge of historical and geopolitical events."
