"Few writers can genuinely touch the quality of nightmare...the fear that formless and almost banal stems from the sleeping mind. John Bellairs did it with The Face in the Frost. And now there is also The Shattered Goddess." (Mary Gentle)
"A powerful fantasy novel...phantasmagoric." (L. Sprague de Camp)
