''published in short form about the same time as The Broken Sword, though considerably smoother in effect, THREE HEARTS AND THREE LIONS is a more conventional exercise in rationalized fantasy, being clearly reminiscent of the Incomplete Enchanter stories published a decade earlier by L. Sprague De Camp and Fletcher Pratt. Anderson's protagonist - conveyed to a medieval world replete with witches, dragons and erotic danger in the person of Morgan Le Fay - emigrates across a second Threshold into Faerie, returning to the medieval venue to discover himself the current avatar of a Carolingian Eternal Champion, destined to fight on the side of Law against the forces of Chaos. His most original stroke may have been his portrait of elves as remote, aristocratic, hauntingly seductive to humans'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
