The Washington Post: “The real magic is how well six authors can spin together a narrative. The book is a prequel of sorts to Ellen Kushner’s ‘Swordspoint’ series, but stands perfectly well alone…The story is a joy, and literally swashbuckling. Overseeing all the machinations is the Duchess Tremontaine, a villain so laughably scheming that you can’t help but root for her.”
Tor.com: “more dazzling and provocative than you can imagine…more diverse than ever before, and more bursting with ideas and strangeness.”
Lightspeed Magazine: “deliciously satisfying.”
Locus Magazine: “Well-paced, excellently written…delighting in the opportunity to fully indulge in its drama of manners (and swords), it’s one of the most accomplished and purely enjoyable things I’ve read in a while. I recommend it highly.”
