Editorial Reviews

Review

"Flex is a real gem - sharp, weird, and wildly innovative. It zigs when you think it'll zag, then tricks you into screaming when you're ready to laugh out loud. So drop everything and settle in for the night - because once you open this one, you're not going anywhere." - Cherie Priest, author of Boneshaker, winner of the Locus Award for Best Novel and the PNBA Award, and nominated for a Nebula Award and a Hugo Award. "Big ideas, epic thrills, and an unlikely paper-pushing hero you'll never forget. Just when you think you know what's next, the book levels up spectacularly." - John Scott Tynes, author of Delta Green: Strange Authorities "Not since Philip K. Dick started toying with reality for fun and profit has there been a novel so enjoyably hallucinatory as Flex. A heady mix of the surreal and the mundane, it will appeal to fans of video games, donuts, insurance, bureaucracy and crime families. Oh, and modern day mage wars. Yet for all of its wild plot, this is a story about the tender bond between parents and children, the loyalty of friends and how the odd among us find their places in the world. Ferrett Steinmetz has written an page turner!" - James Patrick Kelly, winner of the Hugo, Nebula and Locus Awards "Amazing. I have literally never read a book like this. Read this NOW, if only to be forced to turn the page wondering what the hell Steinmetz is going to come up with next." - Mur Lafferty, Campbell award-winning "Best New Writer 2013" and author of The Shambling Guide to New York "Flex is hot, inventive, and exciting. A real joyride of a story...a whole new kind of magic and a whole new ballgame. Totally recommended." Seanan McGuire, winner of the John W. Campbell Award and Hugo-nominated author "Featuring one of the most original magic systems ever devised and a pair of likable, layered protagonists, The Flex and the Flux is a fast-paced, imaginative, and emotionally engaging adventure. The developing friendships and rapport among the characters are portrayed with sensitivity and avoids cliches, and the magical battle sequences are rigorous and filled with ingenious touches that will make gamers and tax lawyers alike grin with joy." - Ken Liu, winner of the Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy Awards "Flex is a breath of magical, drug-addled, emotionally tortured fresh air, with one of the most unique and fascinating main characters I've read in ages. In an urban fantasy genre filled with handsome vampires and sassy witches, Ferrett presents us with Paul Tsabo--a Greek insurance adjuster with a prosthetic foot, forced into the half-mad underworld of a reality-bending narcotic to save his daughter from a devastating house fire. With great characters, evocative writing, and boundless creativity, Flex is one of the strongest debut novels I've ever seen, and one of my favorite novels of the year." - Dan Wells, author of I Am Not a Serial Killer "Half part Breaking Bad and half part urban fantasy, Flex is an enthusiastic romp through a world of ingenious magic accessed by geeky, obsessive projection. Tremendously entertaining rule-tinkering and loophole-hunts abound. A terrific read." - Robert Jackson Bennett, author of American Elsewhere
