About the Author

Greg van Eekhout is an American fantasy and science fiction writer born and raised in Los Angeles. Following his professional debut, a story in Starlight 3, he published a couple of dozen stories, appearing in most of the genre’s major science fiction magazines, several anthologies, and a number of Year’s Best compilations. His story “In the Late December” was a Nebula finalist, and his first novel, Norse Code, came out in 2009. For fun, Greg practices Northern Shaolin kung fu and indulges his love of little tacos. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

"The story is structured like a caper novel, and fans of stories about heists will enjoy it, but its fantastical elements make it an absolute must for urban-fantasy readers, too."―Booklist

"A combination of caper novel and urban fantasy packs a wallop."―Library Journal

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
