Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A Crown for Cold Silver drags epic fantasy through the mud - but it does so with wit, wonder and wisdom. NPR Books on A Crown for Cold Silver
An epic fantasy that will surprise you. When was the last time you read one of those? Marshall deftly sets up and subverts expectations at every turn. If you think you know what's coming, think again. Kameron Hurley on A Crown for Cold Silver
Feels like a Tarantino movie... A pure joy to read. Booklist (starred review) on A Crown for Cold Silver
This is my favorite kind of fantasy -- alternatively irreverent and brutal, with a cast of wonderfully scarred and nasty people. Any fans of Steven Erikson, Mark Lawrence, or Joe Abercrombie will love A Crown for Cold Silver; I've just finished it, and I'm already eager for more. Django Wexler on A Crown for Cold Silver
This is a fitting follow-up to the first Crimson Empire book; full of bloody battles and strong females... The writing and setting are rich... Purna is a strong character who adds an interesting dynamic to the twisted and surprising story. RT Book Reviews on A Blade of Black Steel
This lusty debut will have you gasping in one breath and laughing in the next...Marshall is playing a long, glorious game. Washington Post on A Crown for Cold Silver
Zosia and her Five Villains are as fun as they are twisted. David Dalglish on A Crown for Cold Silver
Exceptional...a first-rate trailblazer. Publishers Weekly (starred review) on A Crown for Cold Silver
An epic tale of invasion, civil war, and divine incursion. Kirkus on A Crown for Cold Silver
Enough fiendish political maneuvering to make George R.R. Martin jealous. Shelf Awareness on A Crown for Cold Silver
