Product description

Review

an intriguing mystery, elegantly written... with carefully crafted characters both with layers and depth, De Bodard reflects the best and worst of human nature in her novel (The Guardian)

One of the most influential voice in fantasy today. (STARBURST)

Truly beautifully balanced: between new and old, birth and death, beauty and ugliness, inside and outside, beginning and, yes, ending. It walks the line, and walks it fine. (TOR.COM)

I strongly urge you to get House of Shattered Wings: it offers something a little different; a superb blend of intrigue, mystery and magic and urban fantasy; it's brilliantly written; and the story is gripping. I can't wait for the sequel. Very highly recommended. (CIVILIAN READER)

Reading this novel felt like a very intimate experience, the characters and landscape are so well developed with such detail that one feels as if they are walking alongside them as the story unfolds... Ambience abounds in this novel. (Geek Syndicate)

There's so much going on here: social commentary, myths and fairy tales that often feel under-represented in genre fiction, a gripping adventure and an affecting love story. The author has gone from strength to strength. (SciFiNow)

Aliette de Bodard has made a name for herself imagining futures and alternate histories that showcase non-Western cultural landscapes and characters...this is smart and nuanced storytelling (SFX)

Fascinating, moving and hugely readable (SCI-FI NOW)

If you like fantasy which is intelligent and definitely non-formulaic, then I would absolutely recommend this book. (BSFG)

This book is wreathed in mythology, magic and mysticism and it is such a compelling read that maybe the book itself is magic (Fantasy Book Review)
