Here is what the reviewers are saying about The Complete Book of Denizens.
"A–. All too often, monster supplements are primarily
comprised of nothing more than existing variations of other creatures.
That is far from the case here. Most creatures are almost entirely
alien in nature compared to what one normally sees. The decision
to print in full color with this book is also a solid hit. It
really adds a missing element to the book when combined with
the strong artistic qualities."
–Steve Creech, d20 Magazine Rack
"5 out of 5. These 'Denizens of Avadnu' are not your run-of-the-mill
–John Cooper, EN World
"4 out of 5. The creature aren’t just variations
of other creatures. Sure, there are a few anthropomorphic creatures,
and a few Egyptian looking fellows, and so forth, but on the
whole, the creatures are new and I give big points for creativity."
–Jeff Goins, Dwarven Tavern
"5 out of 5. It is one of the most impressive first products
I’ve seen. Heck, its one of the most impressive products
on the market."
–Crothian, EN World
"4.5 out of 5. Primarily intended for Inner Circles Violet
Dawn setting, the creatures of Denizens are nonetheless suitable
for almost any dark fantasy campaign. This is a striking, full-color
book, expertly laid out and designed and packed with artwork."
–Butch Curry, Gaming Report
"5 out of 5. Denizens of Avadnu is a nicely laid out, full-color
hardcover with stunning art, and airtight mechanics."
–Teflon Billy, EN World
"4 out of 5. Having a volume such as this one with so many
well-conceived creatures is a rarity. Most have a tendency to
create truly over the top or silly variations of mythical creatures.
I see true originality here."
–Lars Kåre M. Sukka, RPG United
Denizens of Avadnu is unlike any d20 monster book out on the
market, inside it's covers you will find many strange and unique
denizens. If you're a DM and your players know all the monsters
and have become hard to impress, Denizens of Avadnu could be
–Bradford Ferguson, Silven Crossroads
"5 out of 5. Superb. The full color art is top notch."
–Joe G. Kushner, EN World
"Denizens of Avadnu is simply gorgeous inside."
"Denizens of Avadnu is a competent d20 monster manual that
shows a gratifying regard for needle-sharp teeth. Call me a sentimental
old fool, but I like monster manuals, and I remain respectful
of needle-sharp teeth."
