"One of my absolute favorite books of all time! This is excellent- filled with magic and suspense, shocking revelations and action, even humor. I love all the characters so much-- that is what makes this book so brilliant."
"I love this historical-war-novel-gone-fantasy. That is the best way I have to describe it. Princess Thirrin is bad a as heroines come; the werewolves are far from cuddly; and the vampires..they're hilarious."
"This is urban fantasy at its very best. Francesca Lia Block writes about her native LA with unfaltering reality, literary splendor, and the down-to-earth-yet-completely-airy-and dreamy style that she alone has mastered."
"A debut novel I was very impressed with considering that I had no idea what to expect picking it up. It is a zombie novel like nothing you've ever even dreamed of before. It has a new sequel out that I am eager to read- the Dead-tossed Waves."
