* "Rogerson ably builds this fantasy world through canny details
and contemporary dialogue, allowing for an enjoyable read by
fantasy and non-fantasy readers alike. She also craftily depicts
the power imbalance between Isobel and Rook, offering a refreshing
dynamic in which Isobel often comes out on top. VERDICT A funny,
action-packed, and sweet romance sure to appeal to fans of Holly
Black, Diana Wynne Jones, and Sarah J. Maas."

"Rogerson draws on fairy lore while changing myriad details to suit her story, and in Isobel she provides a strong, confident heroine who may lose her heart but never her head. No glamour is needed to make readers fall for this one."

"This fabulous, flowing read will engage readers quickly and many will not be able to put it down. The forbidden, romantic tension, fast-paced action sequences, and engaging narrative...will make this book a first choice."
* VOYA *
"The setting is deftly conveyed through dialogue and character interactions, thus avoiding any heavy exposition, and Rogerson keeps a nice balance between the development of Isobel and Rook's relationship and the action of the plot. The book's final clash between faerie and mortal is thrilling, but the motivations of the major villain have a touching resonance with Isobel and Rook's inescapable reality as mortal and immortal lovers. Fans of May's The Falconer (BCCB 6/14) will happily flock to this tale"
