"[Bull God] is a lavish, rich novel filled with the machinations of the gods, and the terrible implications their intrigues have on the world of mortal men and women. Gellis brings Aridane to life and portrays the Minotaur as victim as well as monster. Let's hope the world of fantasy can steal Gellis more often."
