Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Well written, beautifully conceived, it is one of the very few fantasy novels I can unreservedly recommend. I love everything about this book.” Michael Moorcock, Nebula Award–winning author of the Elric of Melniboné series
“If you haven’t read Michael Swanwick yet, you’ve been missing some wonderful prose…Con men and warheelers, cluricauns and hobgoblins, and a stunningly beautiful elf-woman who rides a hippogriff all entice and enrapture Will, and the reader as well.” San Diego Union-Tribune
“Triumphant…A heady literary stew. This is modern fantasy at its finest.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Earthy, bawdy, and often brutal, it’s a story that will keep science fiction/fantasy fans involved till the end.” School Library Journal
“This complex narrative is a little scary and a lot witty…Intriguing and action packed…Fascinating.” VOYA
“Impressive and often spectacular.” Kirkus Reviews
