Review:

I was rarely held so captive by a novel...Williams is our Tolkien ( Fear)

Epic fantasy you can get lost in for days, not just hours ( Locus)

Tad Williams proves himself as adept at writing science fiction as he is at writing fantasy. Best of all, however, are Williams's well-drawn sympathetic characters . . . ( Publishers Weekly)
