"Gilman takes his readers on a journey through a world of deep and wondrous impossibilities where marvels lurk around every corner. His infinite city and the lives of its people quickly become an irresistible compulsion— I imagine an evening where Dickens, Miyazaki, and Jules Verne sat down to dream up a metropolis and its wrangling multitudes. Thunderer will leave you wide eyed, breathless and hoping for more."—David Keck, author of In the Eye of Heaven

“Memorably inventive, with intriguing characters … impressive.”—Kirkus Reviews

"Gilman is far above average for a first novelist."—Booklist

“Entrancing. A subtle mix of magic realism and epic fantasy, with the beauty of the former and the worldbuilding of the latter. Recommended for any who want to sit back for a spell and just dream.” —Brandon Sanderson, author of Mistborn

“Incredibly imaginative—a brilliant new author.” —Jeff VanderMeer, author of Shriek

“Carries the day with panache and boldness and ingenuity…What Gilman has achieved here is something exotic and Borgesian, a novel that never stumbles or disappoints.”, Grade: A
