"...reminiscent of Stephen King"
-- Red City Review
"...undertones of Lovecraft, mixed with
(Clive) Barker and just a splash of Thomas Harris, Rites of Azathoth is a thrill ride of a novel....Cavallo is a master of the mental image...he takes your brain and makes it his canvas."
--The Horror Review
"...high intrigue, ancient rituals, disgusting villains and mind-ripping horrors...catnip for Lovecraft fans."
--The Slaughtered Bird
"exceptional...can proudly take its place in the Lovecraftian Mythos...riveting, intriguing and terrifying..."
--The Haunted Reading Room
"...R-rated crime fiction that takes a sudden, jarring turn into the otherworldly ... makes the supernatural stuff stand out in an explosive, stunning way."
"A masterful blend ... readers will find themselves in the midst of dark rituals and a world of horror and fear."
"...a special recommendation .... more than enough to keep them awake at night."
--Midwest Book Review
"This blend of police procedural and Lovecraftian horror had two hooks to grab me."
"Oh Cthulhu, there was so much about this book that I loved ... the Lovecraftian mythos was worked in perfectly ... paints it so clearly that I could see the battle. And it was glorious."
