Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lovers of intricate world-building and feverish romance will find this enthralling.” Kirkus Reviews
“Narrator Steve West’s British accent and measured pacing lend a feeling of gravitas to this fantasy. West creates voices for each character, starting with the open, curious tones of the main character, Lazlo…[and] harsher voices for Weep’s residents…To Sarai, the half-god teen who has been living in hiding and whom Laslo falls in love with, West brings a softer tone. Epic in scope but intimate in details, this production will leave listeners waiting for the next installment.” AudioFile
“Poetic prose, finely crafted fantasy and oodles of adventure, peril, romance, redemption, gods, royals, and warriors. It’s a fantasy lover’s delight, with ever-higher flights of fancy brought crashing to earth and then soaring anew as the pages turn and the characters journey on.” BookPage
“Gorgeously written in language simultaneously dark, lush, and enchanting.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Characters are carefully, exquisitely crafted, the writing is achingly lovely, and the world is utterly real…This is a thing to be savored.” Booklist (starred review)
“Has all the rich, evocative imagery and complex world-building typical of Taylor’s best work. This outstanding fantasy is a must-purchase for all YA collections. School Library Journal (starred review)
