Review quote

..".The tale of young Iskander comes to a close in the volume you hold in your hands, The Fields of Hades. It is a story that has taken centuries to unfold and decades to percolate in the mind of one of the most generous and gifted writers it's been my pleasure to know. This book, and its author, stands apart from the long shadows of its literary forebears, and in its pages one can almost see the purple mantle passing hands..." - SCOTT ODEN, Best-selling Author, From Introduction to 'SHADOW OF THE LION: THE FIELDS OF HADES'.
