From the Publisher“Coe writes a wonderfully complex and engrossing tale, but what truly made this book for me was the richness and depth of the beautifully crafted characters. A good plot makes for a great read, but interweave that plot with rich, complex characters and you have a splendid book—and this is a splendid book. There is absolutely nothing superficial about Coe's writing—it is strong, complex, and emotionally very, very powerful.”
—Sara Douglass on Bonds of Vengeance
"Coe's world is much more intricate than that of most similar fantasy writers, and he seems to have a deeper grasp than most of the complexities of interhuman relationships."
—Science Fiction Chronicle on Seeds of Betrayal
“Turmoil and deception propel Coe’s second entry in his Winds of the Forelands tetralogy, maintaining the momentum of its predecessor, Rules of Ascension (2002). The author deftly manages a multistrand plot full of political intrigue that never flags despite the wealth of engrossing detail. A large cast of characters both old and new enliven the sword and sorcery. Readers who go for good clean fantasy fun will eagerly await the next installment.”
—Publishers Weekly on Seeds of Betrayal
"Mesmerizing, highly readable fantasy for teens waiting for the next Tolkien movie."
—Booklist on Seeds of Betrayal
"War and politics, love and magic, all drawn in detail against a vividly imagined feudal background. A complex and excellent book."
—David Drake, author of Lord of the Isles
"This sword and sorcery epic from Coe gathers momentum like a runaway moving van.... After this impressive opening volume, one can only hope Coe will keep up the high standard in the remainder of a projected four-book series."
