“Creepy entertainment for less beautiful autumn days.”
Rosa Couch

“From the gloriously schlocky (in a good way) title to the exacting 1920s period details, “Cult of the Spider Queen” is a note-perfect, pulpy rollercoaster that reminds me of those weekly cinema serials back in the day such as “Flash Gordon” and King of the Rocketmen”, and it would be awesome if it was developed now for TV or a movie. This book is a must for horror fans and masochistic spider-haters alike.”
Kid Ferrous Reviews

“You know how you go to horror movies and shout, “Don’t go in that room!” Spider Queen makes you wonder why they went down that tributary, why they went on that warship that smelled bad, why they went into that shrine and on and on. But, it wouldn’t be much of a horror story if all the characters thought things out. Don’t go near that cave! Oh shoot, they did it anyway.”
Happy Horror Writer

“All in all though the novel is a fantastic creepy (and crawly) read. It builds the perfect balance of tension and suspense while keeping you intrigued and wanting more. A must read for fans of horror, cosmic horror, rip-roaring adventure, Lovecraftian inspired work or spiders in general!”
What You Tolkien About

“I generally felt immersed in the surroundings and was able to perfectly picture the rainforest and what the characters were going through. It even got to the point where I felt so itchy and fidgety as if I had spiders crawling all over me, insane.”
Uneducated Book Diary

“As unsettling and disturbing as anything that Lovecraft himself wrote… a complex, gripping roller coaster ride.”
Amazing Stories

“Whether this is your first introduction to the world of Arkham Horror or you’re a long time fan I’m sure that The Last Ritual will keep you hooked right up to the end.”
Trans-Scribe

“Superbly written, deftly plotted, and imbued with Sidor’s absolutely phenomenal imagination and inherent understanding of the decaying, sumptuous décor of Jazz Age Arkham that hides a terrifying underside, The Last Ritual is one of the most enjoyable and memorable occult horror thrillers that I have read in a long time.”
SciFi and Fantasy Reviewer

The Last Ritual by S A Sidor is a perfect tie-in novel for the Arkham Horror universe… a fantastic yarn.”
Jeremiah Dylan Cook, Horror And Fantasy Writer

“This would make a wonderful TV serial, akin to the recent Lovecraft Country. I enjoyed my time in this strange land immensely, and am looking forward very much to the next titles in the series. Absolutely recommended.”
The Catbox

“What a beautifully-crafted piece of work The Last Ritual is, in all senses… provides a fascinating window into Eldritch activities that grow from unsettling to truly horrifying.”
Fistful of Meeples

The Last Ritual is a brilliantly eerie and well executed read.”
