Praise for Matthew Stover's Caine series

"Marvelous . . . "Day of the Jackal "meets" Lord of the Rings"."--Simon R. Green, author of the Nightside series, ""on" Heroes Die"

" "

Praise for "Caine's Law
""Getting "Caine's Law" made me feel like a kid on Christmas Day -- where Santa was the toughest, smartest, meanest SOB you could imagine, and he had a huge damn knife. Best. Holidays. EVER."--John Scalzi, author of "Old Man's War
" Expect multiple plot threads that loop wildly and unpredictably between past and present, expletive-laden dialogue, havoc, torture and mass destruction. For starters. ["Caine's Law" is] brutal, witty, insightful, addictive, frequently baffling and altogether astonishing. Kirkus Reviews
"Through character moments of mirth and despair, to scenes of awe struck power and emotion, this book is intellectually and emotionally powerful. This novel is beyond entertainment, but it s also entertaining. I loved it. What more is there to say? If you re looking for a serious series to dig into, this one is deserving of your attention. Follow it through, and "Caine s Law" will not disappoint."--Roqoo Depot
"Easily one of my favorite novels of 2012."--SFF World
Praise for Matthew Stover s Caine series
"Matthew Woodring Stover's 'Acts of Caine' series is hands down one of the most bad-ass, brutal -- and brilliant -- fantasy series of the last double-decade. You know this if you're already reading it. If you're not already reading it, then good lord, it's time you found out."--John Scalzi, author of "Old Man's War
