"The writing is enticing, the story multi-layered. I enjoyed falling under its spell. Well done. Draws you into the story from the first page." (Judges for the 2012 Annual Book Awards, Bay Area Independent Publishers Association.)
"Wildly imaginative black comedy. The gripping opening drags the reader into the nightmare of Raymond's brush with the supernatural, with the threat of the invasive sea in the basement suffocatingly real. The details, such as the spectacles that won't come off Raymond's face and turn everyone he sees to a death's head, are surreal and horribly convincing. Lindsey has an enviable turn of phrase and this is excellent black comedy. The story line has the classic fantasy themes of the dark forces versus the flawed human hero, and the alliances which develop in a world where magic is possible (Jean Gill, France.)
"How to write like a pirate! Superb writing style and a captivating story filled with shining and disappearing characters, ghostly insights and laugh out loud humor. Great read. I'm hooked. Bring on the sequel, prequel or any work by this author. It's just that good." (C. L. Sumruld, Nashville Tennessee.)
"The style is unique, the colorful language and characters endearing. The gentle choice of words in intimate moments is both sweet and believable. The "A slip through time and space. This highly textured and imaginatively written book will take you through reincarnation and romps through time. Go with it! I did." (Linda Ofshe.)
"Five stars. Entertaining and exciting read. There is no flaw in this fabric. It is great to pick up a book by an unknown writer and be blown away by the quality of the story and writing. I see great things in the future for Mr Lindsey. (Peter c Ike on Amazon reviews.)
"Jim Lindsey shares a light and amusing view of life in the "here and now" and in the beyond. He is obviously a student of human nature giving a believable quality to the motivations of his characters." (F. Cech on Amazon reviews.)
"Eighteenth century time travel, grinding existential angst and hearty dollops of Buddhist-flavored metaphysics." (Standard-Times San Angelo Texas.)
