Praise for the Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn series: 

A grand fantasy on a scale approaching Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.”—Cincinnati Post

Sprawling, spellbinding…weaves together a multitude of intricate strands, building to a suitably apocalyptic confrontation between good and evil.”—Publishers Weekly

“An epic tale of the struggle of good against evil.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“The fantasy equivalent of War and Peace.”—Locus

“Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn is one of the great fantasy epics of all time. I can’t even remember how many times I’ve read it. It kept me so enthralled, I plowed through the last book in just one sitting! Here be magic, dragons, sprawling battles, thrilling feats of derring-do, ancient mysteries, hidden secrets—all the things a good story needs.” —Christopher Paolini, bestselling author of Eragon
