Praise

Praise

"The structure of the story has the feeling of a classic Dungeons & Dragons campaign as the heroes and supporting cast cross a wasted plateau in search of the tomb; however, the strong characters, setting, and history turn what could be a cookie-cutter adventure into a gripping tale." - Publisher's Weekly

"Enough page-turning mayhem to sate the most avid sword & sorcery fans" – Elaine Cunningham, author of The Thorn Trilogy 

"This rollicking tale hooked me from the get-go. Told with zest and humor, this is everything that is good and golden about classic old-school fantasy yarns. It joins my precious bedside shelf of favorite re-reads, 'comfort food' books I turn to again and again. Egil and Nix might not be the safest guys to go adventuring with, but they're sure good company. I'll be waiting for a sequel. Impatiently." – Ed Greenwood, bestselling creator of Forgotten Realms

"The Hammer and the Blade is an instant classic, with its punchy sense of humor, likeable heroes, and fast-paced, creative fight sequences. Killing a demon is just the prologue and after that the real adventure begins." - City Book Review
