Reviews

"Satisfyingly rich in incident yet admirably spare in the telling...Hearn has created a world I anticipate returning to with pleasure."ย—The New York Times Book Review

"The most compelling novel to have been published this year."ย—The Times (London)

"The most extraordinary novel...The passion and rapture of this story is so compelling that it's almost worth delaying your holiday for."ย—The Independent on Sunday (UK)

"Complex...fast-paced, arousing adventure reminiscent of Arthurian legend that's told with all the urgency of a modern-day thriller."ย—Book Magazine

"Across the Nightingale Floor is as exciting a debut as any in recent yearsย—part Shogun, part Lord of the Flies and entirely enchanting."ย—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
