“Smart, entertaining … a marvelous hybrid of intellectual quest and well-plotted adventure…. A literary thriller in which—unusually—neither “literary” nor “thriller” seems an afterthought.”—Kirkus Reviews

“The novel’s greatest pleasures might lie in its esoterica, its fascinating trips down side paths of the fantastic.” —Columbus Dispatch

“A fascinating blend of the bibliophile quest novel merged with romance, intrigue and fantasy.”—Seattle Times

“Fascinating … an old-fashioned quest…. Christopher is a compelling storyteller and writer.”—Boston Globe

“Magical and melancholy … richly drawn .”—Washington Post Book World
