  • "The writing is so beautiful and descriptive." (The Guardian)
  • "Action-packed, violently gratifying, and darkly addictive novel...the perfect blend of historical fiction, fantasy, and steampunk, with enough romance and humor to have readers devouring each page..." (VOYA)

  • "A character and a world that breathes life into fantasy." (Library Media Connection)
  • "A combination of steampunk tech and supernatural danger with a multitalented heroine who can hold her own against murderous faeries and romantic foils alike." (Publishers Weekly)
  • "A riveting world, a fierce heroine, and electrifying action-I burned through this sparkling debut!" (Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series)
  • "Aileana is an amazing, brave hero... the writing crackles with wit." (Booklist)
  • "Ball gowns, blood, and an evil fairy determined to bring about the end of the world -- this comedy of manners has it all." (School Library Journal Curriculum Connections)
  • "Forget Bella, banish Katniss and Expelliarmus Hermione-there is a new breed of ass-kicker intown. . . . Elizabeth May's debut is a wicked cocktailof Jane Austen and the Grimms' fairy tales." (SciFiNow)
  • "Simply put, my favorite YA paranormal this year. A must read!" (New York Times Bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout)
