Kirkus Reviews 

As a collection of poems spanning pivotal subjects, Armor Against the Dawn is a complex representation of the poet’s passionate views.
 The collection is layered with expressive thought and candid revelations of the poet’s position on multiple current day social events.  Insightful, as well as bold, the collection is infused with an underlying theme of a continual searching for answers, for understanding, and for resolution.  

Realistic Poetry International

An ingenious visionary and virtuous human moral-compass, Lang makes writing poetry seem effortless, hypnotizing us with fantasy-like analogies that cleverly unravel meaningful and philosophical multi-layered themes. Each theme underlines and mirrors many different colors and faces of life and humanity.
