Praise for David Anthony Durham and The Acacia Trilogy:

"David Anthony Durham has serious chops. I can't wait to read whatever he writes next."
--George R. R. Martin

"A fascinating world."

"Transcendent. . . . As fantasy epics go, the 'Acacia' trilogy is a direct and worthy descendant of Tolkien." --Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star

"A truly epic fantasy . . . Superbly written."

"Something genuinely new. . . . Strong echoes of Homer and Virgil, Tolkien, Norse mythology's Twilight of the Gods and America's compromised history as a republic built on slavery fuse into an enthralling, literate and increasingly suspenseful narrative."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred)

"Never lets up. . . . A very tasty fantasy stew."
--San Jose Mercury News

"Extraordinary. . . . One of the best books, fantasy or otherwise . . . in recent memory."
