Praise for The Oddling Prince

A Publishers Weekly 2018 Spring 2018 Top-Ten Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror release

“[10/10 stars] This is luminous writing that enfolds the reader like a spell from the very first page . . . Hold onto your bows and arrows Elflings, we might have an early contender for the best fantasy novel of 2018”

The Oddling Prince is Nancy Springer at her very best. If you don't know her work―which seems most unlikely―The Oddling Prince is the perfect place to start!”
―Peter S. Beagle, author of Summerlong

“Nancy Springer is a treasure.”
―Ellen Kushner, author of Swordspoint

“In The Oddling Prince, Nancy Springer juggles the tropes of fantasy and folklore with skill and wit, exploring kingship, brotherhood, friendship and heroism of many kinds while telling a story that kept me up far too late finding out what was going to happen next to characters I really cared about.”
―Delia Sherman, author of Changeling

“5/5 stars. I LOVED THIS SO MUCH. It felt a bit like Juliet Marillier’s stories with the peaceful pacing, fae elements, vibrant medieval Celtic setting, and very little violence.”
A Page with a View

“A beautiful, unique, and gorgeous story that should be read by all ages.”
Pass Me That Book

The Oddling Prince is fantasy at its best. Lyrical prose, memorable characters, and a haunting story bring to life the never-was worlds of Calidon and Otherland. Filled with magic, fabulous horses, swordplay, and treachery―at its core, The Oddling Prince is about the power of love. This skillfully wrought novel reminds readers of why Nancy Springer is one of our top fantasy writers. A must-read book!”
―Vonnie Winslow Crist, author of The Enchanted Dagger

“What a thrilling yarn! Fast-moving, full of surprises, and yet infinitely satisfying. Every time you think you know what's going to happen Springer pulls a new but perfect rabbit out of the hat. The Oddling Prince is one of those great books that'll be reread over and over again.”
―Brenda W. Clough, author of How Like A God and A Most Dangerous Woman

“In The Oddling Prince, Nancy Springer has written a small, perfect epic, three words I did not think could ever live well together. And yet here it is: romantic, heroic, moving, satisfying―and not an overblown farrago of words. Read it―and believe.”
―Jane Yolen, author of The Emerald Circus and Sister Light/Sister Dark

“Lyrical and lovely, The Oddling Prince feels both fresh and like a classic ballad that's been part of the English canon for centuries.”
―Sarah Beth Durst, award-winning author of the Queens of Renthia series

“Springer (James Tiptree Award–winning Larque on the Wing, 1994) weaves this coming-of-age story with themes of magic, love, and loyalty.”

“5/5 stars. This very well could end up being my favorite book of the year.”
Way Too Fantasy

“Nancy Springer tells a magnificent and magical tale, full of vivid landscapes and unforgettable characters. With an engaging plot and fast-paced action, The Oddling Prince is a must-read for fantasy lovers of all ages”
―Karen E. Taylor, author of the Vampire Legacy series, Cellar, and Love & Monsters

“A breath of fresh air, wonderful world building and a must read for fantasy lovers.”
The Stars Listen

Publishers Weekly

“The writing is suburb and you really feel like you are there with all of the sights and sounds of medieval Scotland . . . a truly magical story that should not be missed.”
Brotherly Love

"There is a sense of a fantasy mashup of Ulysses and the Faerie Queen set in a Victorian romantic version of the Middle Ages . . . There is a very skilled hand at work here.”
Strange Alliances
