“A vivid and robust writer, Saylor invests his books with exquisite detail and powerful drama.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer on A Mist of Prophecies
"Superb. From the exceptional attention to historical detail to the development of character and plot, which is based on real history, it's a treat to read."
