Editorial Reviews


"Gritty and unrelenting. A great read."--Petros Triantafylou-

"The fertile soil of Mesoamerican mythology, warped through the lens of Fletcher's hyperkinetic imagination, yields hypnotic, terrifying results."--Brian Staveley, author of THE EMPEROR'S BLADES  

"With every novel he writes, Fletcher has a way of contributing something  brilliantly twisted and utterly unique to the Fantasy (orscifi) genre, and I found Smoke and Stone to be his best  work yet.
--Grimdark Magazine

"Ancient, bloodthirsty gods, street sorcerers, rival gangs, faith, and sacrifice all come to play a part is this dark and original tale from one of the best in the biz. It's bloody, enthralling, and grimdark as f*ck. "

"Michael R. Fletcher has written an amazing book about the devastation left by a war of gods. Filled with forced oppression, and the sacrifice of millions. Gods, who in desperation to save their worshipers, created a city in which the remains of mankind dwell. Strangely enough, it's weirdly magical. There's a haunting feeling of both hopelessness and possibilities."

"Set in a unique and finely crafted world decimated by war, rich in both history and beliefs evocative of Mesoamerican culture, this story is suffused with ageless deities of endless monikers determined to topple the current structure of the pantheon. These renewed and ongoing battles between fickle gods threaten to trigger bloodshed between men, revealing well-kept secrets that will surely shatter the fabric of society. Devoted priesthoods and heretical assassins,savage street-magic fueled by carefully formulated concoctions of narcotics and divine will, public sacrificial rituals to appease blood-thirsty gods, the world-building in this book is both astonishing and impeccable."

"Smoke and Stone is post-apocalyptic fantasy magnificence..."

"It's unapologetic. It will make you uncomfortable. It might even offend you. Please don't let that stop you. Art shouldn't be comfortable. Good art should be the exact opposite, and this book delivers."

"It is a dark tale full of unconventional ideas with that special kind of madness that only Fletcher can provide. "
