Reviews

“A fine, carefully crafted novel, filled with mythic adventure and populated by fantastic creatures. I can’t wait to read the next book.”―Brian Herbert

“Sir Able of the High Heart is unlike any other hero, part Candide and part Conan the Barbarian, and the worlds in which he travels are also appropriately unique. Wolfe’s version of Faerie is both allusive and elusive, beautiful and fatally glamorous.”―Tad Williams

Praise for The Wizard

“Wofe’s words was over the reader with transparent grace and charming playfulness as he spins his profoundly imaginative, metaphysically complex, yet ever-entertaining tale with astonishing naturalness.”―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Arising from the same sources as Lord of the Rings, the Wizard Knight is one of the few fantasies that can justly be compared with it.”―Booklist
