Prince of Nothing has reviewed the book on his Age of Dusk blog and writes that "The premise is strong, straight out of a Conan short story." He continues: "The normally open-ended nature of the location-based adventure cannot be utilized and author must rely on atmosphere and the strengths of individual encounters to carry the day. While I'd argue XP1.1 has it where it counts in the atmosphere department, it is uneven in the encounters department." And concludes: "Nice final encounter, occasionally good flavor, great dedication to the source material, but not enough meat on the bones."

This adventure has also been reviewed as part of the collection "The Spider-God's Bride and Other Tales of Sword and Sorcery".
