"The Courtesan Prince is a space adventure charged with sexual energy and ambiguity. Though not heavily laden with technology, it is clear that Williams possesses a strong technical mind. As a writer and computer programmer, I enjoyed the references to "blits" and other subtle touches that leant to greater believability. I look forward to reading more of the Okal Rel series."

"I just wanted to send you a quick note about one of your books, The Courtesan Prince.... I have to say I was presently suprised when the book entirely sucked my attention in. I haven't read about a universe so interesting as when I read Dune, or the Fire and Ice series by George R. R. Martin for quite a while, and your book definitely builds an interesting scene and story."
-Honey-Marie Giroday, Reader
"Readers who enjoy hard and gritty science fiction won't find much of it here; this is a novel about people and cultures, honor and duty, and love and hatred. Featuring gunfights and swordfighting, rodeo-quality spaceship manuevers and murderous nobles, The Courtesan Prince is an enjoyable stand-alone read and a promising start to what is to be a 10-volume saga."
-Dru Pagliassotti, The Harrow
