What people are saying about Twilight Times Books:

"Angelos belongs in most fantasy, Christian fantasy, or New Age collections."
Library Journal

[Apache Lance, Franciscan Cross] "...if you appreciate a fine historical novel built on absolutely faultless research, Apache Lance, Franciscan Cross will draw you in. ...This is a fine example of the genre, one of the best of its kind."
The Midwest Book Review

[Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective] "In this entertaining series opener, Amsden (The Immortality Virus) introduces readers to the eponymous Cassie, a decidedly mundane member of a magical family. ...Readers will enjoy Cassie's fish-out-of-water struggles as she fights magical threats with little more than experience and bravado."
Publishers Weekly

"EQUITY of EVIL is a shocking indictment of the pernicious role of greed in the medical world. A powerful read!"
Robin Cook, International Best-Selling Author

[Hidden Shadows] "Linda Lucretia Shuler has penned a vivid story woven with suspense, love, loss, artistry and renewal. A great read for all ages."
Jane Kirkpatrick, New York Times Bestselling Author

[Hudson Lake] "captures the intoxicating mix of energy and danger that defined the early days of jazz."
Booklist

[Infinite Space, Infinite God] "What a great book! ...stories that are well crafted, compelling, and fun!"
Br. Guy Consolmagno SJ, astronomer at the Vatican Observatory and author of God's Mechanics.

[Jerome and the Seraph is an] "entertaining book that ironically connects complex topics (the afterlife, mythology, and quantum physics) into a wonderful fantasy."
The Midwest Book Review

[Monkey Trap is a] "sf adventure that combines hard science, mysticism, and alien contact."
Library Journal

[No Place for Gods] "...superbly-crafted novel of international confrontation, where atomic arsenals count for nothing in a power struggle of a different kind."
Uri Geller, internationally known author and psychic

[Savage Survival] "...a cautionary tale that blows open the standard concepts of strength and power."
Kate Douglas, author of Wolf Tales

"Root's first novel [The Elixir] tells a tale that both entertains and uplifts in its depiction of an engaging pair and the love that asserts itself as the true miracle."
Library Journal

[The Focus Factor] "is another of those books I've read lately that should be required reading for everyone of voting age. Kudos to all for a job well done."
Barry R. Hunter for Baryon

[The Melanin Apocalypse] "Darrell Bain has given us another winner. The science fiction community is lucky to have him."
Travis S. "Doc" Taylor, author of The Tau Ceti Agenda.

[The Storks of La Caridad is] "...beautifully written, as well as meticulously researched. ...Perhaps this is the art of historical mystery writing at its best."
The Midwest Book Review

"Ken Lizzi's new novel [Under Strange Suns] blasts off in an action-packed flight to worlds far away, in a cross between John Carter and Star Trek, with just a dab of Starship Trooper tossed in. And it's swords and guns and aliens, oh, my ... What's not to like?"
Steve Perry, New York Times Bestselling Author
