There is no faulting Cockayne's story telling. His style is direct and simple, yet very engaging. He seems as equally comfortable writing pathos and humor as he is at dealing with myths and violence. - SFREVU.COM
A heady fusion of well-known fantasy tropes and the quiet oddness of everyday life, with a dash of social satire for good measure. - ZONE-SF.COM
