Lynda E. Rucker put together this for Sinescope:Journal of the Arts. I wrote a small piece for it, too.

Setting is in important to me and I've visited a great many countries. One wonderful place I stayed in is the convent at Bazzano which inspired a story......

'Historical fiction is very difficult to write. In addition to telling a compelling story, the writer must insure that, facts and names are all accurate, nothing factual manipulated for plot purposes. Juggling myth into this mix of fact and fiction adds to the high degree of difficulty. Only the best writers attempt this often later in their careers. But Allyson Bird does all this and makes it look easy in ISIS UNBOUND. She must be a polished veteran of historical--mythological novels? But no, amazingly this is a first novel. And an excellent novel at that. The prose is rich, rewarding with a density of detail, the plot compelling, the characters completely believable. A highly literate novel that should appeal equally to genre and mainstream reader alike. I would give this novel my highest recommendation (and have to a number of my reading friends).'

I'm over the moon that Gene O'Neill (writer of Hercules and Zena) has written that for me.
