The Imlen Brat
opens in quite enjoyable territory. Then things start opening up, and moving in surprising directions. A delightful beginning. I look forward to seeing Stisele's future in all its colors.
-- Rich Horton, Editor, The Year's Best Science Fiction & Fantasy
The Imlen Brat
is a tale of court intrigue, fast-changing alliances, and the constant subtle peril of being an adopted daughter in an enemy royal house. It's a compact Game of Thrones
, with mighty pirate kingdoms, weather wizards, quarrelsome ghosts, curses, and secret magics. Don't miss it!
-- John O'Neill, Black Gate
