Praise

Praise for The House of Binding Thorns

“If reading [The House of Binding Thorns] is sometimes walking the unfenced edge of a cliff, the vista is dizzying and beautiful.”—Fantasy & Science Fiction

“This affective sequel to 2015’s The House of Shattered Wings touches the heart as often as it cuts throats.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for The House of Shattered Wings

 
“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 Dandelion Dynasty
 
“De Bodard presents a gritty, otherworldly Paris in her fast-paced, fantastical thriller.”—The Washington Post
 
“Gripping…reads like a hybrid of le Carre and Milton, all tinged with the melancholy of golden ages lost.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
“A novel that is both haunting and original, its sense of loss almost palpable, and its setting not quite anything else in modern fantasy.”—Locus
 
“It’s a grim story with high-flown conventions, but by finding so much ugliness even in supernatural beauty, de Bodard makes both seem more compelling, and more concrete.”—NPR.com
