Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Plausible action scenes and a rough but good-hearted lead make this another winner.” Publishers Weekly
“Snarky humor and the great bantering between Eddie and Liz combine with a fun puzzle plot that is only slightly implausible. Fans of the lighter end of fantasy and smart-alecky heroes such as Harry Dresden might want to give this series a try.” Library Journal
“Of all the clever things Bledsoe does with his LaCrosse novels, the cleverest is to set the stories in an unspecified era on an alternate version of Earth, thus allowing him to do whatever he wants without worrying about history. The blending of medieval-fantasy and private-eye tropes—Eddie’s fee is ‘twenty-five gold pieces a day plus expenses’—proves thoroughly entertaining for fans of both genres.” Booklist
“Another independently intelligible outing for freelance sword jockey Eddie LaCrosse…Fans will enjoy this book.” Kirkus Reviews
