Praise for The Jackal of Nar:
"John Marco has now joined the ranks of Robert Jordan, Terry Brooks, Stephen Donaldson, and, of course, J. R. R. Tolkien."
"Absorbing, deftly plotted…with promising character developments and a well-rounded, satisfying end."
"Marco’s first novel offers an unusual and imaginative mix of well-conceived magic with a technology that includes gunpowder and trench warfare. Its plot is rife with twists and interesting kinks, and should captivate most fantasy fans."
"The Jackal of Nar introduces us to a world full of intrigue, villainy, magic and technology, producing a unique fantasy tale….I can’t wait to see how the rest of the tale unfolds."
–Michael A. Stackpole
"Introduces a marvelous new voice to the world of fantasy. Jackal is a stunning first novel and I eagerly await the next book of Nar."
"A well-crafted military fantasy, fast-paced, and underscored with believable characters and politics."
