While suspenseful and fast moving, the “The Nibelungen Hoard” builds up a complex plotline threaded with old sins that come back to haunt both sinners victims, even many decades later. Mining the rich depths of the greatest human conflicts of the 20th century (Fascism v. Allies, Soviets v. West), Mr. Todd weaves an incredibly suspenseful and realistic story. With twists and turns that spring naturally from past events and present-time choices, the reader is taken on a fictional yet authentic journey that’s nothing short of memorable.

Todd modulates the interaction between well-researched historical fiction and fast-paced espionage fiction with a great deal of skill and lots of very good dialogue. The result is a memorably good novel.

"Once I started reading, I couldn't put the book down. Unlike the alternative Nazi histories so popular right now, Nibelungen Hoard tells a compelling story without making the German public villains. I was swept up by the hunt for the treasure and look forward to future novels by this author." - A Salaman
"Ed Todd has created a masterpiece. Fast paced and thrilling, there are as many twists as a road through the Alps." -Scott Wood
"Wow. Really compelling read and clever story, well written. I've never read a book in so short a time!" -A Jones
