Praise

“The devastated Paris of Aliette de Bodard’s novel is especially haunting…A series of mysterious deaths turns the novel into a surprising but compelling murder mystery, which plays out according to the supernatural terms de Bodard has laid out so evocatively.”—The Chicago Tribune
 
The House of Shattered Wings exists in a rich, evocative Paris that is thick with magical history. Pathos and beauty intertwine in a novel filled with longing.”—Mary Robinette Kowal, Multiple-Hugo award winning author of The Glamourist Histories
 
“A Gothic masterpiece of supernatural intrigues, loves and betrayals in a ruined and decadent future Paris—wildly imaginative and completely convincing, this novel will haunt you long after you’ve put it down.”—Tim Powers, author of The Anubis Gates
 
“Lyrical, sophisticated, lush, suspenseful…brings to life an exciting world of deep magic and complex, layered characters.”—Ken Liu, author of The Grace of Kings
 
“Fantastic! De Bodard’s tale of a post-everything Paris, struggling toward an uncertain future beneath the burden of its imperial sins, burns with vengeful magic and subtle, shining prose.”—Max Gladstone, author of the Craft Sequence

“De Bodard aptly mixes moral conflicts and the desperate need to survive in a fantastical spy thriller that reads like a hybrid of le Carré and Milton, all tinged with the melancholy of golden ages lost.”—Publishers Weekly
