What people are saying about Twilight Times Books:

"Angelos belongs in most fantasy, Christian fantasy, or New Age collections."
Library Journal

[Apache Lance, Franciscan Cross] "...if you appreciate a fine historical novel built on absolutely faultless research, Apache Lance, Franciscan Cross will draw you in. ...This is a fine example of the genre, one of the best of its kind."
The Midwest Book Review

[Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective] "In this entertaining series opener, Amsden (The Immortality Virus) introduces readers to the eponymous Cassie, a decidedly mundane member of a magical family. ...Readers will enjoy Cassie's fish-out-of-water struggles as she fights magical threats with little more than experience and bravado."
Publisher's Weekly

"EQUITY of EVIL is a shocking indictment of the pernicious role of greed in the medical world. A powerful read!"

Library Journal

[No Place for Gods] "...superbly-crafted novel of international confrontation, where atomic arsenals count for nothing in a power struggle of a different kind."

Library Journal
