From Publishers Weekly:
“Ryan’s fourth Seven Swords novella (after City of Songs) is an exemplar of the fantasy series installment that significantly carries the overall story forward while remaining accessible to first-timers… As in previous volumes, Ryan’s atmospheric prose and nuanced characterizations set this apart. It’s another winner.”
