“A brilliant, inventive, arresting piece of work from a master craftsman. This novel captivated me from the very opening pages, and I suspect the same will be true for you. I dare you to prove me wrong.”
—Bradley P. Beaulieu, author of The Winds of Khalakovo and The Straits of Galahesh
"Enge’s swift-moving story offers both depth and classic sword-and-sorcery questing to create a solid addition to the series.”
"Enge is in fine form again.... What could be a wild storm of confetti and mayhem is anchored beautifully by Morlock’s pragmatic idealism, and everything comes together in a satisfying conclusion.”
Praise for A Guile of Dragons (A Tournament of Shadows Book One):
"Efficiently excellent epic fantasy…. Enge's engaging portrait of Morlock…will have readers hunting down earlier books to learn more about the adventurer and his history."
-Publishers Weekly starred review
"Enge is not only a writer of fantasy, he's a devoted fan educated in its history and evolution. That's no more apparent than in his adventures of Morlock Ambrosius, a swordsman wandering a world rife with various magical disciplines. In A Guile of Dragons, Enge takes us back to show us the origins of his hero, as the Longest War-the war between dwarves and dragons presumed to have been over and done with-reignites with the return of the dragons."

"Providing a back door into the Arthur/Merlin mythos, Enge creates a fascinating counterpoint to the familiar legends."
