Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for "The Crown of the Blood":

"I tore through The Crown of the Blood in one long sitting... This is a properly high fantasy world - rock people, dark sorcery, landships, riding panther and (of course) dinosaurs - but all of it is introduced naturally and casually... his book is hairy, gory, sweaty, shameless... and perhaps even a little bit thoughtful."- Pornokitsch

"The Crown of the Blood should really have a warning sticker on the front... it's one of those books that are almost impossible to put down, so much so that you find yourself unconsciously continuing to (try to) read after geeting up to make a brew / go to work / go to bed (delete as applicable and don't try this at home kids). The novel also stands out with a very strong opening scene and excellent end, with a genuinely unexpected twist." - SFBook.com
