Praise for the Renshai saga:
"Slashing swordplay, a telepathic cat, spirit-sucking spiders, dizzying genealogical complications, and three warrior brothers all lend depth and sparkle to Reichert's latest installment of her immense Renshai Chronicles saga.... Reichert's handsomely fleshed-out world and animated characters make her latest book an entertaining and philosophical journey with glimmers of sorcery from mages and elves that foreshadow further Renshai adventures." --Publishers Weekly (starred) "The Last of the Renshai is rich in incident, action, and folkloric expertise ... above-average worldbuilding." --Chicago Sun-Times "Very strong.... There are wonderful elements that make this novel special.... It's an excellent read." --Locus "[Reichert] draws her characters realistically and uses the wizards believably. She has created a very real world.... Readers who love sword-and-war-type fantasy will keep turning the pages, spellbound." --VOYA "A master's touch for provoking curiosity from the reader and drawing dynamic characters." --Rave Reviews (now Romantic Times) "The Renshai Chronicles had an interesting basis in Nordic myth and legend, and the Renshai were exciting warriors out of legend." --Grasping for the Wind
