"A book of old, wild magic--nothing is what it seems." --Seth Dickinson, author of The Monster Baru Cormorant

"Myer delicately threads a steady path through a complex, ever shifting plot while maintaining a consistent throughline of theme that condemns the heedless and selfish choices of the powerful and pointedly underscores the folly of ignoring the quiet, seemingly insignificant people whose unexplored depths and considerable strengths might be poised to strike against those very same people at the top. A fitting end to a gorgeous experiment in art, worldbuilding, and character, growing in strength from book to book." --Kirkus, starred review

"Opulent, ambitious fantasy....Myer's intricately braided plot strands culminate in a clash of supernatural Otherworld powers. Those new to the series will have no trouble connecting with the well-drawn protagonists ....Readers will be blown away by the lush, lyrical prose and epic scale of this novel." --Publishers Weekly

"Myer's lush prose and imagery amplifies a layered plot filled with magic, prophecy, and power." --Library Journal

"This riveting series conclusion is hard to set down and will leave readers hoping that Myer returns to this fantastic fantasy setting someday."--Booklist

"Every word is carefully shaped, every sentence is imbued with meaning and magic. It builds like a symphony, all of the moving pieces coming together in a magical harmony. "--ComicYears

"[Myer's] world opens like a flower, revealing fresh landscapes both beautiful and dreadful...Worth waiting for." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
