Slatter is a master world-builder
Slatter's work is excellent, and eminently readable . . . It's easy to see how she's managed to make such an impact on the genre
The world of the Weyrd collides with modern-day Brisbane, bringing chaos in its wake. A brilliant new urban fantasy with elements of murder, mystery and magic - I'm already looking forward to the next Verity Fassbinder adventure
Simply put: Slatter can write! . . . Read this writer. She'll drop the scales right out of your eyes!
Verity Fassbinder comes on like a high-octane mix of Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden and Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone - dry, smart, funny, fuelled by a need to protect the weak, and driven by a past that haunts her. Verity's BrisVegas is a far cry from the streets of Brisbane you'll see in tourist brochures, a dark supernatural playground where anything can happen and where the strangest of us can find safe haven. If you loved True Blood, or if you've ever loved a great PI series, then Vigil is for you. Smart, funny, and engaging. I can't wait for the sequel!
Rich and heady as honey mead, potent and earthy as great Scotch, the sublimely dark tales of Angela Slatter are an addictive delight
Like Aickman, her sense of the fantastic serves to show us the weird world we hold within our own psyches . . . Slatter's prose is often magnificent, and she's able to craft characters as great as the powers they wield
One of the most important voices in fantasy
Angela Slatter's ink is full of intimate magic and hard wisdom. Her characters live and breathe and glance out at you from the page to question your motives. One of the best dark fantasy writers working today
Edgy, hilarious and full of heart - Verity is back and as brilliant as ever!'
Angela Slatter is an Australian author who spins beautiful yarns in a musical, fascinating narrative style
The Fassbinder fun continues. The only-half-Normal Brisbane sleuth has fox-spirits, ninja librarians and much, much worse to deal with now, even as motherhood gives her a makeover. Slatter's dark imaginings, spritzed with humour, pack age-old magic into a contemporary setting with a sure hand. This woman knows her stuff.
Half-Weyrd troubleshooter Verity Fassbinder is back: funny, capable, super-strong ... and this time heavily pregnant . . . Angela Slatter's writing is as deft and witty as ever. With its delicious blend of the mundane and the totally weird, CORPSELIGHT will make you laugh, shudder and keep turning pages until the very end.
Superb. Witty, dark, increasingly fascinating characters and a gorgeous set up ending to make you desperate for the next one.
A fast-paced new entry into the urban fantasy genre
Angela Slatter [is one] of the most daring and exquisitely polished writers on today's' speculative fiction scene
If you loved the Dresden Files but thought there were not nearly enough females taking charge, Verity is the answer to all your woes.
