“Marr offers readers a fully imagined faery world that runs alongside an everyday world, which even non-fantasy (or faerie) lovers will want to delve into” Publisher’s Weekly, starred review
“The fantasy of being pursued by two young men is alluring in itself, but when one is a pierced and tattooed sexy outsider and the other is a blindingly beautiful King of Faery, how much better can it get? Readers will beg for a sequel” Washington Post
"This is a magical novel… the first book in a trilogy that will guarantee to have you itching for the next instalment. * * * *" Bliss
"It is a read that pushes boundaries and is not afraid to be honest. All the things that make a great teen novel are there, including angst and romance, but in a refreshingly edgy way that may well entice a new audience to teen fiction. 'Wicked'!" From Bump to Grump
"An assured debut… I look forward to seeing Marr's future work." Locus Magazine
"I thought this book had a really great storyline and writing style… The alternative universe was well-explained, and the plot, though complex, was not difficult to grasp. I think anyone over 12 years old should read this book, or they would be missing out on something brilliant."
Red House Reader, aged 13
