What People are saying about this

Judith Tarr
The first work of high heroic fantasy I've seen that has taken the work of Tolkein, assimilated it totally and deeply and absolutely, and produced something altogether new and yet incontestably based on the master....[Moon's] military knowledge is impressive, her picture of life in a mercenary company most convincing. I'm deeply impressed.

Great book!

This book(entire series) had a lot of potential, however I felt that the characters did not develop past basic good/bad. It was very strongly a good vs evil, with both lines clearly drawn out, but no depth to either side. There was very little suspense or wondering what was going to happen next, because all the characters were entirely predictable.
