"Highly recommended for lovers of urban fantasy. It's a blast."

Vincent Dublado

Feathered Quill

"A fast-paced fantasy thriller... the author is skilled at mystifying and setting up cliffhangers at the end of each chapter, making this book hard to put down. The Palladium is as thought-provoking as it is suspenseful, giving readers a unique, vicarious experience of the battle between primordial good versus evil."

Rebecca Jane Johnson

It was very exciting, fast-paced and you want to know what’s going to happen next. Elements from the beginning click in the end, there are some amazing quotes sprinkled throughout, and the creativity is beyond anything I could have imagined myself."
