Praise

“Gorgeously written, The Spear Cuts Through Water is unlike anything I’ve ever read before. It is a fable, a dream world, a love story, and a meditation on the nature of humanity all wrapped into one. Simon Jimenez has written the rare kind of book that changes the way you see the world, that makes you pause and appreciate the beauty in every small moment of life and, even, death. The Spear Cuts Through Water is a beguiling fantasy not to be missed.”—Evelyn Skye, New York Times bestselling author of The Crown’s Game

“Reading Simon Jimenez’s The Spear Cuts Through Water feels like dreaming an impossibly epic movie, cinematic yet fluidly surreal, a mythic tale of clashing gods that never loses its human heart.”—Indra Das, Lambda Literary Award–winning author of The Devourers

“Drawing on staples of traditional fantasy such as reluctant, mismatched heroes on a quest, The Spear Cuts Through Water subverts expectations with its language, point of view, and narrative choices. Readers looking for self-aware fantasy with folkloric overtones and the sensibilities of an epic poem—look no further. Jimenez’s novel is an intricate, multilayered story speaking in multiple tongues at once. Fans of diverse, nuanced epics like Black Sun and the Broken Earth series will find this worth their while.”—Suyi Davies Okungbowa, author of Son of the Storm

“Jimenez has raised the bar for every fantasy writer working; he’s taken the standard engine of epic fantasy, shattered it against the ground, and rebuilt it into a glittering mosaic, where every individual tile is just as important as the picture they make together. Wholly unique, dreamy yet grounded, triumphant and bittersweet, The Spear Cuts Through Water is a tremendous achievement from beginning to end.”—Martin Cahill, writer on Batman: The Blind Cut
