"The Reckoning is brilliantly written and hypnotically readable. I'm amazed by the sheer energy and scope of the thing. It crosses genre boundaries with perfect confidence, jumping the crevasses that swallow lesser writers. . . . In my mind, Niceville has earned a place with some of the great destinations in the Land of Make Believe, like Middle Earth, Narnia, and Arkham." --Stephen King
