Editorial Reviews

Review

“Deft, tense and atmospheric, compellingly immersive and wildly original.” ―The New York Times

Unlike anything I’ve ever read. Muir’s writing is as sharp as a broken tooth, and just as unsettling.” ―V.E. Schwab, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

“With a snorting laugh and two middle fingers, the whole thing burns end-to-end. It is deep when you expect shallow, raucous when you expect dignity and, in the end, absolutely heartbreaking when you least expect it.” ―NPR

"Warm and cold; goofy and gleaming; campy and epic; a profane Daria in space." ―Robin Sloan, author of Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

I can't remember the last time I was so delightedly baffled by a book. An astonishing, genre-defying, hilarious-violent-tragic-horrifying-thrilling wonder of a novel.” ―Kiersten White, NYT Bestselling Author of And I Darken

Lesbian necromancers explore a haunted gothic palace in space! Decadent nobles vie to serve the deathless emperor! Skeletons!” ―Charles Stross, author of The Laundry Files and Empire Games

“I started this book chuckling at the outrageous premise. I finished it crying, because the ending punched me straight in the gut.” ―Vox

And Five Starred Reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, Library Journal, BookList, and BookPage
