“The novelette is good-humored, with action the entire time, and manages to create a climate of tension at the most important moments. Gerard and Oludara feel pain, get hurt, but always manage to free themselves from danger. In the best “Indiana Jones” style, they always find an elaborate way out.”
– Daniel Borba, Além das estrelas

“The narrative is fun, alternating between tense moments–battles with danger and action–to the use of irony and humor.”
– Tania Souza, A LitFan
