Once again, Glenn G. Thater managed to take my breath away with his latest installment in the Harbinger of Doom series. The visuals were breathtaking, the battles were detailed, and I am impressed by his ability to portray the associated monsters and scenarios.
I also want to thank Glenn for being incredibly generous with providing me with a coupon to download this book for free. His kindness is one to remember.
