"Brimful of magic and adventure." --"Starburst" "[McKenna's] the thinking fantasy reader's writer, and the stuff she writes is dangerously addictive." --Charles Stross, author, "Missile Gap" "Brimful of magic and adventure." "Starburst"" "Written with verve and style, they're all ripe and juicy and ready for picking." "SFX"" "McKenna creates real tension and her battles . . . are unique and excellently done." "Time Out"" "An original and intriguing setting, impressive world-building and compelling writing set McKenna's work apart from a field thick with far less ambitious fantasy works." "Publishers Weekly" on "Southern Fire"" "When a talented writer makes fiction seem like history, the book becomes an event. The world Juliet McKenna has created within the Aldabreshin Archipelago is carefully developed, layer upon layer, giving it the reality which is the hallmark of outstanding fantasy. She writes very visual prose, enabling the reader to see every scene in great detail. Her characters are colorful and believable; love them or hate them, you won't forget them. I certainly won't. Kheda, Risala, Dev, and many others linger in my mind, awaiting the continuation of their story." Morgan Llywelyn, author, "The Greener Shore," on "Southern Fire"" "[McKenna's]the thinking fantasy reader's writer, and the stuff she writes is dangerously addictive." Charles Stross, author, "Missile Gap""
