...
Prata brings this fascinating tale to life by giving the characters real personalities....The book is a real page-turner.
...
As the author of a similar genre book, The Spear of Lepanto (2005), I congratulate Nicholas Prata's Angels in Iron. His riveting account of the crucial 1565 Siege of Malta between the Ottoman Turks and the Knights of St. John is a testimony to unyielding faith in the face of staggering odds.
...
Author Nicholas Prata has given us a new insight and appreciation of this important confrontation that may indeed have saved Christian Europe from the onslaught of Moslem steel. Had it not been for la Valette's stubborn resistance, it is quite apparent that the Italian peninsula would be the next target for Turkish armies from a fortified base at Malta.
Prata gives us chapter after chapter of men refusing surrender in the face of certain death, men who drew strength and a sense of invincibility from their faith. I commend the author for his authentic page turning account of the great siege.

Kerebos & Dream of Fire

Nicholas C. Prata
"The earth trembled between his feet and a tongue of magma spewed from the side of the cliff into the sea, igniting the oil which had seeped up from the broken depths. Kerebos reached for the distant flames as they spread across the surface, but another gust struck him, lifting the cape from his broad shoulders. Droplets froze on his black armor."
Experience the gritty and dangerous world of Pangaea in Nicholas Prata's masterful novel, Kerebos and it's climactic companion, Dream of Fire. With the power of Korenthis in eclipse, the wastes of Pangaea are terrorized by the raw, merciless might of the Black Legion. All fear them.
...
In Nicholas Prata's crisp, polished prose, Kerebos unfolds with an epic sweep with complex, fascinating characters through amazingly vivid battle scenes.
...
"Nicholas Prata's Dream of Fire makes for an intellectually challenging but very rewarding work of dark fantasy....Kerebos thinks his sin is too great to be forgiven by God or man, and the philosophical depths to which he plunges in self-contemplation are both moving and very instructive to the reader....Dream of Fire succeeds admirably on two levels.
...
Nicholas C. Prata is a gifted writer, combining the world of fantasy with that of religion without preaching to his readers....
...
"Prata does know his military tactics!... Those who enjoy hardcore military fiction will enjoy this book." -Emily Snyder of the Christian Guide to Fantasy web site "A fairly new author (backed by a fairly new publisher), Mr. Prata surprised me with his polished prose....WARNING: the author attempts to describe true evil ... and he does it disturbingly well ... good emotional draw, believable characters, well described action...." -The Henriksen Parallax web site "Prata creates in Dream of Fire a world in which anger and chaos collide with strength and faith; battle scenes are vivid with crashing swords and broken bodies.... [A] solid read, a book for the fantasy reader who enjoys an intelligent story of adventure."
...
