Reviews of stories in this collection:
- Colin Harvey, Suite101, on 'At the Gates'
"This one kept me turning the page without pause, with its natural pace and flow of words, good characterization, and skillful plot build-up. Samphire's writing skill is matched only by his knowledge of Ancient Egyptian culture and mythology."
- Scott M. Sandridge, Tangent Online, on 'The Land of Reeds'.
"A great coming-of-age story."
David Roy, epinions, on 'When the Dragon Falls".
