REVIEWS

“I was quite impressed with ‘The Prince’s House.’ It had never occurred to me to think about the day-to-day struggle of loving someone who suffers from possession (or the psychological analogue to it). I don’t think I’ve ever seen a story that takes this seriously as a human condition (as opposed to a cheap plot device or evil to be opposed). Hats off!” Jonathan Langford, A Motley Vision
