"Lanyon is an entirely satisfying writer on every level. The writing itself is superb, but unlike some authors whose writing is great but whose stories have all the excitement of cat kibble, the stories are gripping and exciting as well, and the people three-dimensional. They are the kind of stories you will read again and again because of their depth and because you grow to care about the people in them."
