One of Paste Magazine’s 15 Best Fantasy Novels of 2018

PRAISE FOR Tess of the Road:

“This achingly real portrayal of a young woman whose self-loathing takes help to heal is a perceptive examination of rape culture rare in high fantasy. Not to be ignored, this is also a fascinating road trip adventure. Absolutely essential.” —Starred Review, Booklist

“Like Tess’ journey, surprising, rewarding, and enlightening, both a fantasy adventure and a meta discourse on consent, shame, and female empowerment.” —Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

“[A] rousing adventure set in a richly drawn world. . . . Newcomers to Hartman’s work will be every bit as enthralled as her fans with this companion novel to Seraphina and Shadow Scale.” —Starred ReviewBulletin
