Praise for The Golden Key

“This three-way collaboration is original in concept and superior in execution. Characterizations and worldbuilding are finely realized; Rawn and company have done their homework on art, and overall, the romance justifies every one of its nearly 900 pages and demands its place in most fantasy collections.” —Booklist

“Using prose, the authors gloriously illustrate this concept—that pictures are more valuable than words. The world the authors create is entertaining…. what makes this massive tome interesting are its detailed descriptions of the making, and uses of, painting, and the creative way the authors play with magic.” —Locus

“To define [The Golden Key] within one genre is impossible. Suffice it to say this nominee for the World Fantasy Award is a remarkable book…. one of the most absorbing books I’ve read in some time. I give it my highest recommendation.” —SF Site

Another fabulous fantasy collaboration…. an impressive bit of worldbuilding. As one would expect, the fascinating background is meticulously brought to life… we are held spellbound by this dark fantasy all the way through its mesmerizing conclusion.” —Romantic Times
