Editorial Reviews

A glorious, fast-paced romp of an adventure. Jessica Cluess has built her story out of my favorite ingredients: sorcery, demons, romance, and danger. Kelly Link, author of Pretty Monsters
Pure enchantment. I love how Cluess turned the ‘chosen one’ archetype on its head. With the emotional intensity of my favorite fantasy books, this is the kind of story that makes you forget yourself. Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen
A fun, inventive fantasy. I totally have a book crush on Rook. Sarah Rees Brennan, New York Times bestselling author
* “Cluess gamely turns the chosen-one trope upside down in this smashing dark fantasy. Publishers Weekly, Starred
The pages turn quickly and this first installment in the story is over before the reader will want it to be. The ending is perfect, too. Huffington Post
