"At each stage there are historical and cultural references to explain the antecedents to the coming crisis, putting the entire situation into the larger context of good versus evil. I found the best parts of the story to be the cultural wrappings Reno Ursal sprinkled so generously throughout the tale." Dan Kalin, Readers Favorite, March 2019
