“Modesitt spins quite a web of treachery and deceit in which our hero and his wife impressively come out on top.” —Romantic Times on The Ghost of the Revelator
“Meticulously extrapolated...Alternate world tales and espionage thrillers both demand an abundance of intricate detail to be convincing and Modesitt doesn't stint for either thread of his narrative.” —The Washington Post Book World on Of Tangible Ghosts
“Possibly Modesitt's best book, it's certainly highly recommended.” —Booklist on Of Tangible Ghosts
