Praise For Righteous Fury (Legends of Alfar #1)

"Tolkien with a dash of Gemmell and a sprinkling of George R. R. Martin . . . an interesting approach to magic."—Malazan Empire

"The prose is sharp, the action sequences bloody and all in this has been a real joy to read. Throw into the mix some cracking double-dealing, some political machinations and all in this series has been a pure joy from start to finish and definitely one I'd recommend to other fantasy fans."—Falcata Times

"A Tolkienesque fantasy adventure novel needs a solid villain for the readers to loathe, and in Markus Heitz's Righteous Fury, we find a quite impressive one . . . If your bookshelf is already home to Tolkien, Martin, and company, Righteous Fury will find a comfortable spot to fit in."

"driven by unrelenting action, [the book] springs to life through the vivid, vigorous writing"—Kirkus Reviews

"Heitz keeps on delivering ... I would recommend Righteous Fury to everyone looking for exciting Tolkien-inspired fantasy"—Upcoming4me
