For any student of English litereature or fan of Shakespeare, Sidney or Marlowe, this book is a dream come true. What happens in The Armor of Light is what should have happened.-Pamela Dean Scott and Barnett have a style and an atmosphere in their collaborative work that is distinct from their separate work, without losing any of the separate strengths of each partner. Historical accuracy and historical invention, society and culture, details of dress and costume, drama and action, all highlighted in _The_Armor_of_Light_ It's one of the best fantasy novels. -- David G. Hartwell
This is a good historical fantasy. They play around with the history, saving Sidney from his Dutch wound and Marlowe from his tavern in Deptford, and punched up the magic a lot. Marlowe would have loved that. What's more, they got the language right, they got the characters right, they got the society right, they sure as hell got the clothes right. It's set up like a play, in five sections, and each section does exactly the right thing. Sidney would have approved of it. Robert Greene would have given it a rave review. Cecil would probably have had them both silenced. -- Delia Sherman
