“To read Jack Whyte is to surrender to a storyteller of the old school. His writing is firmly rooted in the basics of good storytelling: strong characterization, effective plotting, and excellent writing.”
— Quill & Quire

“Whyte's found the key to refreshing the legend and making it live again.… The wealth and richness of the historical detail are fascinating. If James Michener is the past master of sweeping epic, then Jack Whyte may well be the future one.”
— Calgary Herald

“Whyte … is creating a reality so detailed … that the reader comes to believe it must be true. But he is also creating a fiction so extraordinary that it resonates with the feel of myth.”
— The Statesman


“Whyte's descriptions, astonishingly vivid, … ring true, as do his characters, who include a number of strong women. Whyte shows … time and again how persistence, knowledge and empathy can help push back the darkness of ignorance to build a shining future.”
— Publishers Weekly

“Whyte avoids the clichéd trappings of … myths with careful attention to historical detail.… The muck and mire, the casual violence and deep-seated political intrigue will be surprising to readers.”
— Toronto Star

“Solid historical fiction with lardings of fascinating fact.… Whyte has the happy gift of being able to weave gigantic doses of exposition into readable prose that rewards patience with a rich picture of a surprisingly attractive time.”
— The Globe and Mail
