"Lochlann has a great flair for sensory detail and fills her novel with such a wealth of sights, sounds, smells and flavors that the reader feels absolutely immersed in the world of ancient Crete from the first page." Historical Novel Review, January 7, 2012
"Full of historical flavour, mystery and imagery. You can hear the crowds, taste the dust, feel the gore of the bull's horns. Wonderful, lyrical prose, worthy of ancient Greek myth." Cas Peace, author of King's Envoy, published by Rhemalda Publishing
"You have translated words, ideas, poetry, character, myth into an alchemic wonder, a dazzling novel of the ancient world, and are a fit heir to the great mantle of such writers as Mary Renault, Scott O'Dell and Robert Graves, and even, dare I say it, the goddess herself." M.M. Bennetts, author of May, 1812 and Of Honest Fame: Diiarts.
"A difficult subject risen to with an imagination at the height of its powers. I have a vivid memory of my trip to Mycenae and you gave back to those broken stones all their lost life and colour." Violet Wells, author of Ponte Santa Trinita and Burnt Ochre
