One of Publishers Weekly’s Best Summer Reads

“Not since Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass have I seen such an original and compelling world built inside a book.”
—Megan Whalen Turner, New York Times best-selling author of A Conspiracy of Kings

I think The Glass Sentence is absolutely marvelous.  It’s the best book I’ve read in a long time.  The world-building is so convincing, the plot so fast-moving and often surprising, and the ideas behind the novel so completely original. I love this book.”
—Nancy Farmer, National Book Award-winning author of The House of the Scorpion

“I loved it! So imaginative!”
—Nancy Pearl

“An exuberantly imagined cascade of unexplored worlds, inscribed in prose and detail as exquisite as the … maps young Sophia uses to navigate such unpredictable landscapes. A book like a pirate’s treasure hoard for map lovers like me.”
—Elizabeth Wein, New York Times best-selling author of Code Name Verity

* “Brilliant in concept, breathtaking in scale and stellar in its worldbuilding; this is a world never before seen in fiction . . . Wholly original and marvelous beyond compare.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* “A thrilling, time-bending debut . . . It’s a cracking adventure, and Grove bolsters the action with commentary on xenophobia and government for hire, as well as a fascinating system of map magic.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review
