“This is the reason I fell in love with the books set in the Essalieyan universe.” —Dear Author (for Battle)

“Richly and superbly detailed. Her characters live and sing.” —Examiner (for Battle)

“Ms. West is able to develop in the reader a true sense of emotional connection to the characters. These are people who’ve been in my life since the late ’90’s and, like George R.R. Martin’s characters, they feel like family. I’m much closer to Sagara’s characters, but that’s not surprising since that emotional attachment and the growth and development of the characters is central to the story of struggle…. I loved this book, as I’ve loved all of her books. If you’re new to this kind of writing and have read George R.R. Martin’s series and enjoyed it, I highly recommend these books.” —Chaotic Compendium (for Skirmish)

House Name is lush, richly intricate, heartbreaking in its subtle dealings with Jay and her den…. West has a brilliant hand in detail, in weaving in background to fuel the story without being clunky and boring, and in creating a luxuriously textured world that is at once familiar and strange. Some say Michelle West has been propelled into the ranks of George R. R. Martin and Robin Hobb—I say that she’s been there all along and it’s about time she was noticed as such.” —Night Owl Reviews (for House Name)

“[City of Night] is a super action oriented investigative fantasy in an incredible world as Michelle West makes her empire and capital seem as if it comes from ancient history books rather than her imagination.” —Alternative Worlds (for City of Night)

“This is a compelling story with riveting and finely wrought characters that will keep you up well into the night. This story will go down as one of the best novels in its genre, propelling West into the ranks of Robin Hobb and George R.R. Martin. It’s simply a great read; don’t miss it.” —The Maine Edge (for The Hidden City)
