"If we ever needed a poet laureate of brave, broken, real people who survive the darkness, Nicole Lyons would get my vote, as she is my queen of hearts. She's a heart breaker, a heart mender, a best friend, a warrior, a solace, a rage against the dying light and a new element in the natural world that they haven't yet named. Hell, I'm fairly sure she makes the sun shine and thunder roar. Such is her own, wild, untamed and brilliant voice."
"Nicole Lyons is one of the most exciting, vital poets of our generation. The Lithium Chronicles is her most ambitious and brazen work to date, and she delivers above and beyond. Nicole's ability to delve deep into the human psyche, unapologetic, is her gift to the world. Penning a full range of raw, honest, rage and brutal emotion in six lines is her mastery and magic."
"Nicole writes with desire and hunger, and these passionate qualities show through every word she writes. Rainbow Rowell once wrote, "She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn't supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something." That is how I feel about The Lithium Chronicles. It is art, a collection of writing that makes you feel deeply and also makes you feel understood on a level that is not always there in society or our day-to-day lives."
