Editorial Reviews

Molly Martin
Writer Welch has crafted a fast paced, absorbing fantasy set in a harsh land filled with savageness, inexorable inhabitants and near hopeless situations ... Excellent read.
Pat Fredeman
This novel attempts what few modern works do: it attempts to account for evil in a sane way and operates in a universe not yet bankrupt of rational, ethical discourse. If offered a choice between a Stephen King work and this one by Patrick Welch, unhesitantingly and with alacrity, I would choose Welch's The Thirteenth Magician.
Jonathan Fesmire
If all eBooks are of this high quality, then I foresee that area of publishing gaining more acceptance soon. I hope that one day The Thirteenth Magician will also be in print, but don't wait for that day to read it.
Fred Nowek
Welch's characterization and story are well crafted and a (comparatively) fast read. Very few of his characters are two dimensional throw-aways. There is enough background to provide a backdrop without being oppressive and there is very little (or none--take your pick) excess wordage.
Diana Moreland
"The Thirteenth Magician" is a much darker tale than I expected from Mr. Welch. Woven in the adventure/fantasy is a subtle allegorical tale of power, and a tale for today... Highly recommended.
