"Good news for all heroic fantasy fans." --"Booklist"
"Although this is primarily an adventure story, and a pretty good one at that, it is also a richer and more detailed novel ... the book is both more ambitious and more rewarding than most similar fantasy adventures, as well as providing a nostalgic return to the Thieves' World" --"Science Fiction Chronicle"
