is a smart, slick, noir fantasy. If Elmore Leonard had written Harry Potter for grown-ups, it would read something like this." - William King
"Matt Forbeck's work is unfailingly well-plotted, tightly paced, and imaginatively realized. He juggles humor and pathos with a deftness that defies literary gravity. I'm a huge fan." - John Kovalic
Praise for Amortals:
"Amortals (to paraphrase another sci-fi writer who, in my opinion, has nothing on Matt Forbeck) blew down the walls of my imagination. It then stepped over the smoking rubble, seized me by the throat and kicked my ass. Was this your first novel, you bastard? Holy crap!"- Billy Campbell, star of The 4400
"It kicks like a mule & whispers sweet nothings in your ear like Mike Tyson in a boxing match." - Ben Templesmith
"an action-packed thrill-ride with the occasional sucker punch to the brain you won't see coming." - Monte Cook
had me racing through it's pages, something a book hasn't done to me in quite awhile." - www.livingsocial.com
"...my expectations were not only met, but also exceeded." - The Eloquent Page
is quickly paced, and well-written in quite a breezy style with a very natural flow to Forbeck’s prose that pulls the reader along." - Civilian Reader
"You’ll find that you can get through this book pretty quickly, mainly because you simply won’t be able to put it down, there are a lot of fantastic scenes in this, and did I mention that there’s also zombies? " - The Founding Fields
"The action sequences in Vegas Knights
put to shame even the highest-budgeted action movies. Where directors need millions of dollars in special effects and stunts, Forbeck uses language to much greater effect. " - The Ranting Dragon
"Overall this is a fresh and suspenseful Urban Fantasy novel. It is great entertainment, and if you have a taste for fantasy in a contemporary setting this is definitely worth checking out." - Wierdmage's Reviews
"It's fantastic entertainment and I loved every minute of it, Viva Las Vegas (Knights)!"
- SF Book Reviews
is one of the best Urban Fantasy books I've read in a long time; it's cleverly written, fast paced and wonderfully fresh."
"I started this book and realized right away that I was in for a great (and fast) ride."
