"Australian author Croggon masterfully bolsters this high fantasy with substantial extra material including maps, a pronunciation guide, and intricate notes on the mystical forces that shape these lands; the careful craftsmanship of story and support and the effective use of this installment's--and the series'--considerable length result in a richly developed, engrossing, and epic quest." 1/1/2008
