"Good opening book of the series. The duology of Craftsman and Willbinder is well thought out and planned. The characters are stretched to their limits...a fun read and I recommend it to fantasy lovers."  Alex Mcgilvery, celticfrogreviews.com

Craftsman: Blood Forge is Seph Ronden's first published work.  He co-authored this and its fast-paced sequel, Willbinder: Teardrops of Neba, with his long-time friend Thomas Stout.  Together these two novels complete the first epic fantasy saga in the riveting ADVENT OF THE ARD-ULLEM series.  Seph also just released his third and fourth books; Protector: Immortafice, and Thoughtweaver: Visions and Realities; must reads for the Irish fantasy connoisseur.

"Great fast paced fantasy read. I liked the infusion of Celtic mythology into a clever and engaging plot."  Jonah Sage
