On Talon of Light, March 3, 2004
An engrossing fantasy with some unexpected twists and turns that make it all the more enjoyable. there are things here that don't happen in most fantasies--an ancient prophecy which is out-of-joint, a reformed villain, and a hero who is NOT the first to receive the magic sword. Characterisation is exacting and well-built, and there are plenty of dragons for the dragon-lover. Author of Renegade: The Hunter.

Talon of Light is the first book in the Brazen Serpent Chronicles. It is high fantasy at its best. The story is chock-full of heroes, damsels, dragons and evil antagonists. Dennis Baird has given us a rich tale that depicts the age old struggle between good and evil; we cry and cheer and gasp along the journey. A tremendous first novel that will bring the author success. It is unfortunate that the price placed on it by the booksellers is so high, but don't let that stop you...you will be glad to have this one in your collection. Author of Jumping Jack Flash of the Time Tripper Series.
