Reviews

"A warm, whimsical delight--The Left-Handed Booksellers of London is a witty, clever adventure in an exquisitely detailed world you will love escaping into." --Veronica Roth, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Divergent series and the Carve the Mark series
"This is my favorite kind of tale, one where the magic and the real nest together like pages in a book. A delightful read." --V.E. Schwab, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of the Shades of Magic series and the Monsters of Verity series
"Readers will beg for more adventures in this London." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Susan Arkshaw - 18, white-blonde buzz cut, Hendrix t-shirt - goes in search of the father she's never met, but things go awry when a hatpin-wielding, gender-fluid bookseller kills the one person who might hold the clue to his whereabouts. Set in London in 1983, this riveting urban fantasy delivers on all fronts: a magical, curious world brimming with nostalgia and references to the author's loves - ancient evil, books, reading, Susan Cooper, Tolkien, London taxis, incidental diversity. This is the book for anyone who has ever said "I don't read fantasy". Nix confirms that booksellers are extraordinary beings with special powers." -- Fran Atkinson, Sydney Morning Herald
