"This is one of the most original books I have read, ever. Andrew Davidson is a phenomenal storyteller and wordsmith. Please go out and read this book, you won't regret it. You'll be hooked within the first few pages."
"Everyone MUST read this novel. I have read a LOT of Steinbeck and I think this is his finest book. The characters are unforgettable. This book has the most evil antagonist I have ever encountered in literature. I loved, loved, loved it!"
"Patricia McKillip has an uncanny ability to transport you to fantastic worlds with her delightful poetic prose. Her descriptions are beautiful and her plots are one-of-a-kind. She has a fantasy style that is all her own."
"Marillier does an incredible job of bringing legends to life. As a testament to her incredible skills as a writer, the main character is mute for the majority of the book...you'd think that might be boring, but you'd be mistaken. It also incorporates a touching love story."
"Love the characters. Love the story (even though the ending makes me cry). I enjoyed the original creative imagery Cadre uses so much that my copy of the book actually has my favorite phrases highlighted. Go read it. Now."
"A slow read at first, but then a highly interesting tale of two scholars unearthing a love affair between two well-known poets. I love reading the present tale intertwined with narratives from the past and even getting a chance to read their letters."
