PRAISE FOR THE EYE OF NIGHT:
One has to go back to the works of R.A. Lafferty to find another fantasy in which an apocalypse means not the end of everything or the begnning of a harsh and cruel world, but rather the beginning of new heavens and new earth. The Eye of the Night is an ingenious and exhilirating story with an indomitable woman protagonist.
-Andrew Greeley, author of The Bishop in the West Wing
"In her debut novel, Ms. Alama delivers crisp dialogue, wonderful writing full of pathos and surprises, and clearly presents a complicated theology integral to the story."
"an enjoyable and pleasantly different fantasy."
"A very good, engaging tale…a masterful first novel."
"Martin’s fans and lovers of Lois McMaster Bujold’s CURSE OF CHALION should enjoy this tale…full of everyday human eccentricity."
