Colfer is an engaging and inventive writer with a strong sense of the rhythm of a story
Better fun than this will be hard to come by
A fun, unusual contemporary fantasy that doesn't skimp on violence
Having grown up reading the Artemis Fowl books and absolutely loving them, I just had to read Eoin's first adult fantasy book and it did not disappoint! . . . This book is dark, brutal and violent at times, but also filled with hope and finding where you belong.
Colfer has come up with something new here, a real genre-blending treat, and I applaud him for it
