"Serious, skull-splitting, blood-spilling, adrenaline-pumping sword-and-sorcery… And as much as I liked Volume I, Volume III is even better… With a dynamite cover depicting a scene from “Thannhausefeer’s Guest,” this book is a cool addition to any S&S fan’s shelf.” (Fletcher Vredenburgh, Black Gate)
“…blood and thunder action, cosmic evil, and memorable characters… If you like testosterone laden fantasy, get yourself a copy.” (Morgan Holmes, Castalia House)
“What stands out most is the dynamic correlation between basic storytelling and the emotional imagery of poetic lyrics. Add in the brash extremity of Heavy Metal, and you have an imaginative new art form with no limits taking center stage. The mere fact that the messages from these writers/artists can shine in varying forms of media is testimony to the skill and talent behind them.” (Ricky Brown, Amazing Stories)
