What the Critics Say

"An incredible read, with completely unexpected twists and turns." (Geek Syndicate)
"Ingenious... The story itself is engaging and totally unique, a plot that pushes the boundaries not for the sake of it but clearly to offer something different." (SF Book)
"It’s like The Matrix meets Game of Thrones, and it’s immense fun... a novel that reads like the work of a seasoned professional but boasts a first timer's vigour." (Financial Times)
"Dani Ware’s debut novel is like no fantasy - or indeed sci-fi - epic you’ve ever read before." (SFX Magazine)
"Staggeringly impressive in both its richness and detail." (Alternative Magazine Online)
"Ware writes with an eloquence that is not often encountered in genre fiction." (BFS)
"The sci-fi debut of the year begins like a cyberpunk thriller, before performing a sharp U-turn to become a rollicking high-fantasy adventure. Ware writes fearlessly and with great self-assurance, and her hero Ecko, cybernetically augmented but as crude and cynical as they come, is a magnificent creation." (Financial Times)
"It is more successful than not and marks Ware as one to watch.” (The Independent)
"With action aplenty, this sf/fantasy mash-up is a thrilling, genre-defying roller coaster ride." (Library Journal)
"A thrilling ride. If you like fantasy, sci-fi and reading about other worlds, then this book is definitely for you." (Dark Media)
