Review

Slatter is a master world-builder (beyondfiction.com)

Angela Slatter's ink is full of intimate magic and hard wisdom. Her characters live and breathe and glance out at you from the page to question your motives. One of the best dark fantasy writers working today (Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of ARARAT and SNOWBLIND)

Straight up 5* no messing. Brilliant. Read the entire thing in a huge gulp. SO addictive, beautifully done, Vigil was great but this was greater. Erm . . . better? Whatever. Superb. Witty, dark, increasingly fascinating characters and a GORGEOUS set up ending to make you desperate for the next one. (Liz Barnsley Liz Loves Books/GoodReads)

The Fassbinder fun continues. The only-half-Normal Brisbane sleuth has fox-spirits, ninja librarians and much, much worse to deal with now, even as motherhood gives her a makeover. Slatter's dark imaginings, spritzed with humour, pack age-old magic into a contemporary setting with a sure hand. This woman knows her stuff. (Margo Lanagan, author of Tender Morsels)

Slatter's work is excellent, and eminently readable . . . It's easy to see how she's managed to make such an impact on the genre (British Fantasy Society)

Edgy, hilarious and full of heart - Verity is back and as brilliant as ever!' (Alison Goodman, award-winning author of Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club)

Half-Weyrd troubleshooter Verity Fassbinder is back: funny, capable, super-strong ... and this time heavily pregnant . . . Angela Slatter's writing is as deft and witty as ever. With its delicious blend of the mundane and the totally weird, CORPSELIGHT will make you laugh, shudder and keep turning pages until the very end.

(Juliet Marillier, award-winning author of the BLACKTHORN & GRIM series)

The world of the Weyrd collides with modern-day Brisbane, bringing chaos in its wake. A brilliant new urban fantasy with elements of murder, mystery and magic - I'm already looking forward to the next Verity Fassbinder adventure (Alison Littlewood, author of A Cold Season)

Simply put: Slatter can write! Beautifully, stylishly, accurately. She conjures ghosts and spirits and forces us to recognise the monsters that are ourselves . . . she conjures the secret and private worlds hidden just inside the curtains of reality, and she does it with sentences as sparse and sharp-edged as unused razor blades. She's my pick: a writer who will constantly surprise; and just when you think she's at the top of her game, she will go on to become impossibly better. Read this writer. She'll drop the scales right out of your eyes! (Jack Dann, award-winning author of The Memory Cathedral)

Verity Fassbinder comes on like a high-octane mix of Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden and Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone - dry, smart, funny, fuelled by a need to protect the weak, and driven by a past that haunts her. Verity's BrisVegas is a far cry from the streets of Brisbane you'll see in tourist brochures, a dark supernatural playground where anything can happen and where the strangest of us can find safe haven. If you loved True Blood, or if you've ever loved a great PI series, then Vigil is for you. Smart, funny, and engaging. I can't wait for the sequel! (Jonathan Strahan, editor of The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year series)

Like Aickman, her sense of the fantastic serves to show us the weird world we hold within our own psyches . . . Slatter's prose is often magnificent, and she's able to craft characters as great as the powers they wield (Rick Kleffel, American Public Radio Books on Angela Slatter)

Rich and heady as honey mead, potent and earthy as great Scotch, the sublimely dark tales of Angela Slatter are an addictive delight (Neil Snowden)

Angela Slatter [is one] of the most daring and exquisitely polished writers on today's' speculative fiction scene' (Karen Miller, author of the Kingmaker, Kingbreaker series on Angela Slatter)

One of the most important voices in fantasy (SF Signal on Angela Slatter)

Angela Slatter is an Australian author who spins beautiful yarns in a musical, fascinating narrative style (SFsite)

Book Description

Watch out, Harry Dresden - there's a new kick-ass guardian in town and Verity Fassbinder's taking no nonsense from anyone, not even the fox-spirit assassins who are invading Brisbane! 'Simply put: Slatter can write! Beautifully, stylishly, accurately. She forces us to recognise the monsters that are ourselves' - Jack Dann, award-winning author.
