Fantasy Faction
Uniquely dark and gritty fantasy. An intriguing debut
Immensely readable . . . a fantasy novel that remembers that battles leave all kinds of scars
B&N Science Fiction and Fantasy blog
Covering ground well-trodden by Joe Abercrombie, with a similar use of earthy language and extreme violence, the story offers an original and effective twist with the use of potions, plants, and poisons on the battlefield . . . relish the well-choreographed action scenes in this debut fantasy
Library Journal
A very dark fantasy story with a distinct western flair . . . absolutely fascinating and incredibly original
Sense of Wonder
Snakewood's narrative voices are the real strength here . . . contemporary and as grimdark as it comes
British Fantasy Society
Grim mercenaries and badass alchemists brought to life by a bold, assured storyteller
Peter Newman, author of THE VAGRANT
This book took me on an emotional rollercoaster. It's adult and grim, but instead of the nihilism and bleakness of much Grimdark these days it has a streak of love and hope running through the heart of it. Most of that is to be found in the central character, Teyr Amondsen. She's flawed, vulnerable and also as hard as nails. I loved her, I loved this book. Highly recommended.
