"An engaging story, written with charm and humour." Juliet Marillier
, author of Sevenwaters
, and Blackthorn & Grim
"Combining wit, fantasy, and even a 1970's-style feminism (via a time-traveling Berkeley student), Gwen Dandridge takes the archetypal story of a princess chosen to be sacrificed to a monster and turns it on its ear." Dianne K. Salerni, author of The Eighth Day series, The Caged Graves, and We Hear the Dead.
"This is a book that will delight fantasy fans. In fact, it's probably a great book by which to introduce the genre to those who have not read it before. It has fully-developed, complex characters; settings that make it a snap to suspend disbelief; and, a plot that draws you in immediately." Awesome Indies Reviews
"This was a very interesting and well written book that I think is well suited for any young adult." IndieBRAG Review
