Editorial Reviews

Review

"I've been wanting to return to the world of 'The Goblin Emperor' from the moment I finished that book, and 'The Witness For the Dead' does not disappoint. At once intimate and literally operatic, it's everything I love about Katherine Addison's writing, in ways I didn't know to expect. I loved it." ― John Scalzi

"The follow-up to the acclaimed
The Goblin Emperor brings back a favorite character and expands the elaborate world Addison has created. Fans of the first book―and new readers―will find this novel delightful and immersive" ― Library Journal

--This text refers to the hardcover edition.
