Praise for the Wars of Vis series:

"The drive and inventiveness which made Lee's Birthgrave remarkable are in evidence in [The Storm Lord].... The unnamed world in which the story is set is as richly varied as Middle Earth." -Publishers Weekly

"The language is very rich, evoking a world of almost Byzantine splendor and complications.... Lee is always a persuasive writer, and her imagination is compelling. Anackire is a cut above her usual high standard." -Locus

"Fans will savor her original, and sometimes frightening, characterizations and careful world building." -Booklist

"[The White Serpent] vividly displays Lee's gift for exotic, sensual fantasy." -Library Journal

"Truly a feast for the senses. The lush sensuality of her prose envelops the reader in a magical ambience." -Rave Reviews

"The Storm Lord [is] by far the best book she has written." -Science Fiction Review Monthly

"An epic fantasy of immense proportions.... Suffice it to say that The Storm Lord is a book I would recommend most highly, and Tanith Lee is definitely a writer who knows her craft." -Tangent Magazine

"Lee is a conscious artist, and combines her knowledge of past civilizations and literary with her interest in psychic power to produce an artistic panorama of another world not too different from ours." -Delap's F&SF Review

"Both the characterizations and the action of this novel are superb." -Drexel Triangle

"In terms of what it takes to make a great fantasy novel, The Storm Lord has it all. I recommend it highly." -The Diversifier
