"Dramatic, cinematic, and at times terrifying, this novel offers a roller-coaster ride between some wicked cliffhangers."  Cynthia Harrison, author of the award-winning Blue Lake series.
"I don't normally read speculative fiction, but this book is breath-taking. I believe Leaf and Flame is Dale's magnum opus, and can definitely see it as a movie!"  Roberta Brown, poet, musician and former president of the over-a-century old Detroit Working Writers.
