THE DANCE OF THE GODS SAGA

For CATASTROPHE’S SPELL

“Another bit of good reading … plenty of action, likeable characters, plot twists galore, a lighthearted humorous style and some pretty good lines.”

Out Of This World Tribune & Niekas

“Three separate lines of action engage disparate characters in a race to converge at last in a huge blast of action … leaving the reader breathless but satisfied….A writer to watch for further adventure-full reading.”

Kliatt

“A generally humorous and entertaining piece.”

Science Fiction Chronicle

“An enjoyable book. The characters have a sense of who they are and can laugh at their own foibles. The action moves swiftly.”

Locus

For SPELL OF INTRIGUE

“A lot of confusion, mayhem, action and adventure — but better yet, a sense of the humorous that doesn’t rely on puns.”

Bakka Bookie Sheet

“Brenner writes in a quick-paced style which perfectly matches his plot twists … a book rich in people, places and complications and one which is enjoyable either by itself or in tandem with the first in the series.”

Quantam

“Zany and very, very clever describe it pretty well.”

Kliatt

For SPELL OF FEAR

“A winner … I was utterly hooked. Its not a belly-laugh-inducing parody of a fantasy so much as an off-the-wall kind of fantasy in its own right….The nearest I can get to the general tenor is The Man from U.N.C.L.E. with magic rings instead of talking pens.”

Interzone

“Like riding on a racing carousel.”

Kliatt

For SPELL OF APOCALYPSE

“For those who like their fantasy with plenty of adventure and a dollop of humor, I recommend The Dance of Gods, of which this is the fourth and final volume…. The frenetic pace keeps things moving … some wonderfully grotesque bits … non-stop action, highly entertaining … an intriguing and delightfully funny series.”

Locus

“This is a charming lighthearted fantasy. The gods are so klutzy and the magic is so ill-fated that the reader smiles through dungeons, fire and death….The action is non-stop and always exciting. The final fight is a doozy … an amusing climax in which all story lines from the earlier volumes come to a conclusion.”

Voya

“Zany, entertaining reading for anyone who enjoyed the first three books of the Dance of Gods series.”

Kliatt

“Wild and woolly adventure abounding with inept sorcery, strange gods and downright funny fantasy.”
