Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Highly recommended for anyone interested in some of the most exciting and powerful fantasy writing of today.” Booklist (starred review)
“Although the story is a fantasy, many aspects of the plot draw on contemporary incidents…Fierce, poetic, uncompromising.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“A harsh love story to one of America’s most famous places. As raw and vibrant as the city itself, the prose pushes the boundaries of fantasy and brings home what residents already know—their city is alive.” Library Journal (starred review)
“A wonderfully inventive love letter to New York City that spans the multiverse. A big middle finger to Lovecraft with a lot of heart, creativity, smarts, and humor. A timely and audacious allegorical tale for our times. This book is all these things and more.” Rebecca Roanhorse, author of Trail of Lightning
“The City We Became is a raucous delight, a joyride, a call-to-arms, a revolution with plenty of dancing. Eat your heart out, Lovecraft.” Alix E. Harrow, author of The Ten Thousand Doors of January
