I’m back from WFC—loved it—and will soon post a detail account of the convention with photos, I promise. But first, here are the reviews that came in while I was gone.
“Night Shade Books has a reputation for producing fine works of speculative fiction, including reprints of genre masters, and they don’t let their readers down with The Princes of the Golden Cage.”—Apex Science Fiction and Horror Digest
“Nathalie Mallet’s debut novel, The Princes of the Golden Cage, hits the ground with both feet and takes off running. From the very first page the action is heart-pounding, the intrigue mysterious, and the story creative.”—Grasping for the Wind
“Like Scheherazade, Mallet gives us a world of sand, roses and tulips, flowing silks in the richest colors, jewels and riches in a treasury worthy of Ali Baba’s cave, and sumptuous captivity for scores of young men all yearning for a single throne.”—Reading the Leaves
“I started reading it this morning, for a break after breakfast and writing, and I couldn't put it down until I was finished. It was fun, fresh, and fast-paced. An impressive book, not just a great debut.”—Charles Coleman Finlay, author of The Prodigal Troll and Wild Things
