One of the clan is depicted here as a man-beast akin to a werewolf, a theme to which Crockett returned in two other supernatural works, THE BLACK DOUGLAS and MAD SIR UCHTRED OF THE HILLS. The present work, while mainly offering romantic historical pageantry, also includes some quite gruesome details." - Robert Eldridge. Day, The Supplemental Checklist of Fantastic Literature, p. 21.
