Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Not quite historical fiction nor quite fantasy but a piquant amalgam of both.” Financial Times (London)
“Strong historical research and world-building, a vast cast of characters, world-changing events…An epic tale filled with characters compelling enough to bear the weight of the high stakes.” Kirkus Reviews
“A masterpiece; perhaps the finest work of one of the world’s greatest living storytellers…This story is shocking, devastating, and beautiful. Kay’s language is elegant in its simplicity, yet painstakingly profound as it cuts to the core of what makes us think and act, and remember.” Fantasy Book Review
“Simon Vance is in the wheelhouse with another strong performance of an expansive novel…Vance’s voice is regal and enthusiastic, leaping into the spirit of the pseudo-Mediterranean world with verve. His dialogue is especially strong with male voices.” AudioFile
