Okay, I admit it, I am a Rosenberg junkie.

This is such a great little read. I don't mean little to be demeaning either. Just not a lengthy book, but certainly not a novella. As always Rosenberg has created a realistic world with fully fleshed characters. That the world he has created has roots in Japanese culture only makes it better in my opinion. Well I think it is mostly Japanese, possibly just oriental flavored might be a better description. Anyway, it like all his books, pulled me into another world and out of this one for a blissful couple of hours.

Joel Rosenberg does it once again

Hour of the Octopus was a fun read. While I still prefer his Guardians of the Flame series, both this book and D'Shai have kept me very well entertained. I especially loved the prologue. It was extraordinarily well-written.

A very solid book, a different style.

This book is different from the start. It is somewhat hard to follow at times buy is worth the effort. There are several unusual twists and turns.

Yet another incredible book by Rosenberg..

Once more Rosenberg has reached into his bottomless creativity and pulled out a masterpiece of modern Science-Fiction. I eagerly await his next novel with ever-growing anticipation. Each of his books was better than the last, but I loved them all just the same!

One of the top books of the year

Joel Rosenberg has shown once again why he is become one of the hottest fantasy/science fiction authors in the writing industry today. This book once again proves that Rosenberg's life experience & writing experience helps produce a great book
