Raves for The Brilliant Death:

★ “A delicious and magical intrigue too tempting not to devour.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

★ “A highly original magic system and a protagonist who is as ruthless as she is fiery make for a fast-paced adventure.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“Mario Puzo meets Ursula Le Guin in a gender and genre bending tale as lush as it is vivid, and as daring as it is dangerous. The hype is deserved and the magic is real.”–Alex London, bestselling author of Proxy and Black Wings Beating
The Brilliant Death is a mesmerizingly written tale of identity, courage and family, wrapped up in magic that feels both folktale-familiar and enthrallingly innovative.”–Alwyn Hamilton, New York Times bestselling author of Rebel of the Sands
“Writing so good it will give you goosebumps, and a story that will sweep you into a wild adventure full of old magic, new love, and dark delight.”–Alison Goodman, New York Times bestselling author of Eon and Eona

“This first in a duology is a luminously imagined, Italian-inspired fantasy that thoughtfully speaks to ideas of gender perception and identity. A rich world, with much left to be explored in the next volume.” – Booklist
“One of the most artful, gorgeous, romantic books in the LGBTQIAP YA canon.” – B&N Teen Blog
“A unique mashup of fantasy, historical fiction, and queer romance… the kind of book you won’t be able to stop talking about.” – Bustle
