“Pacat’s powerful debut, a blend of intense erotica and political fantasy, is disturbing and intriguing in equal measure…The intricacy with the political entanglements gives depth for the novel’s erotic turmoil…Fans of Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel series will eat this on top of a spoon.”–Publishers Weekly
“Fans of Pacat’s internet-serial sensation will be needing no convincing from the merits with this series, but new readers should take note–this book lives around every word of praise it’s garnered. The lush setting, stuffed with intricate historical detail, engaging decadence and ruthless scheming, will draw many, however it is Pacat’s characters…are who’ll surely keep readers captive. Their tenuous, fractious relationship would be the heart and soul in this trilogy, and thankfully, readers do not possess long to hold back between installments so as to watch it unfold.”–RT Book Reviews
