"The characters have become memorable to readers and will be hard to say good-bye to upon setting the book down. Fiona Patton handles the plot very well. Readers will not have a hard time becoming engrossed as the plot is fast-paced for the most part. There is enough action to keep you satisfied and the complicated relationships between the characters will keep readers on their toes... The Shining City is a very satisfying read."
"The depiction of the divine in these books is dazzling. It’s so original and fascinating that even without all of the emotion, heartbreak, and action, I’d still find this series completely engrossing. It’s the best look I’ve ever seen at what it might be like to live with gods who consistently interfere in their followers’ lives."
"This book by Fiona Patton is well written and an enticing novel that caught my eye just by the title. Patton will blow you away with her dexterous descriptions and delectable dialogue.... Patton has created a new world that is both mysterious and enthralling. This fast-paced novel will not leave you disappointed."
"The final Warriors of Estavia (see The Golden Tower and The Golden Sword) is an exciting climax that ties up all the major threads to a strong epic fantasy trilogy."
