The Rule of Ranging is cinematic in its scope, and comprehensive in its scholarship, and alternately funny, bawdy, heartbreaking, instructive, and thrilling. It provides the reader a sweeping history of a world war that covers the themes of love, freedom, greed, innocence, man’s savagery, loyalty, friendship, adventure, and so much more.
“The author’s narrative style draws comparisons to the cinema and, in fact, much of the evolving drama reads like a blockbuster Spielberg screenplay –colorful, dangerous, and exciting. Overall, this swashbuckling tale of likable protagonists and truly vile antagonists is entertaining and informative.” – ForeWord Reviews
“The novel, set in the late 18th century, is stylistically more like medieval romances of King Arthur’s court. The frame around the story eventually reveals an interesting narrative twist. An entertaining adventure novel flooded with manic action.” – Kirkus Review
