"Sensational horror thriller, in which an Oriental savant in a Scottish castle seeks to free soul of beloved from thrall of diabolic brotherhood; rife with supernatural elements, including immortality, metempsychosis, raising the dead, metastasis of stone to organic matter, all incorporated into occult framework based on Zoroastrian beliefs. Highly imaginative, suspense and weird atmosphere well-maintained throughout. An excellent specimen of its kind, well above the norm." - Robert Knowlton. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 43.
