Editorial Reviews

Review

"Wilson has woven a fractal tapestry of a world ― past mingling with future, exotic magic spiced with futuristic science, gods with too-human needs ― and set in it a love story as painful as it is beautiful and complex." ―N. K. Jemisin, Hugo Award-winning author of The Fifth Season

"One of our most stylistically and thematically original fantasists." ―Saladin Ahmed, author of Throne of the Crescent Moon

"[A Taste of Honey] tells a story that is as much about loss and memory as it is about the reclamation of one’s identity... a beautiful look at love in its many forms." ―The Washington Post

"Rich in invention and provocative in its themes... a model of concise, efficient storytelling." ―The Chicago Tribune

"Wilson displays his talent for tugging the reader's heartstrings and underplaying hard emotion, and he delivers a poignant and satisfying conclusion." ―Publishers Weekly

"Stylistically daring, diverse, & unabashedly queer: Kai Ashante Wilson's A Taste of Honey is the future of fantasy." ―The Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

"A vivid and deeply satisfying romance set against a fascinating backdrop, A Taste of Honey will especially appeal to fans of speculative fiction from authors like Lois McMaster Bujold and N. K. Jemisin and will leave most readers agitating for more." Booklist, Starred review

"Wilson’s writing is beyond stunning, and the inventiveness of his world, his language, and his dialogue, are only deepened by his innate understanding of his characters, their rich emotion, and their struggles to live and love as they wish to." ―BookRiot

"The brilliantly original and fascinating worldbuilding is a lush background for a beautifully romantic fantasy, and the writing is rich and visually stunning. I am a Wilson fan for life and can't wait to see what he writes next!" ―Martha Wells, author of The Edge of Worlds

"An enchanting and heartbreaking exploration of regret set within a world of glorious magic." ―Ginn Hale, Spectrum Award winning author of Lord of the White Hell

"Written in a lyrical, song­like style, Wilson’s latest has a rhythm to the prose that is tough to suss out, but the effort is well worth it; the payoff is extraordinary and deeply emotionally satisfying." ―RT Book Reviews

"[A Taste of Honey] establishes Wilson as one of the most original and compelling voices in fantasy right now." ― SF Bluestocking
