Praise and Reviews:
"I tore through The Crown of the Blood in one long sitting... This is a properly high fantasy world - rock people, dark sorcery, landships, riding panther and (of course) dinosaurs - but all of it is introduced naturally and casually... his book is hairy, gory, sweaty, shameless... and perhaps even a little bit thoughtful."- Pornokitsch
"The Crown of the Blood should really have a warning sticker on the front (Angry Robots take note) itís one of those books that are almost impossible to put down, so much so that you find yourself unconsciously continuing to (try to) read after geeting up to make a brew / go to work / go to bed (delete as applicable and donít try this at home kids). The novel also stands out with a very strong opening scene and excellent end, with a genuinely unexpected twist."- SFBook.com
"This is one of Thorpe's best novels ... If you enjoy military or historical fiction, you will enjoy The Crown of the Blood. Action, intrigue, conquest, and charismatic generals are waiting for you here!"- James Atlantic Speaks
