Reviews

"A sharply incisive, wildly intelligent dragon fantasy involving profound layers of science and society, love and loss, and nature and nurture." -Kirkus Reviews

"McKinley renders her imagined universe so potently that readers will wish they could book their next vacation in Smokehill." -Publishers Weekly

"An exercise in fantasy subjected to the rigors of science, a close psychological portrait of human and alien minds, and a helluva good read." -Locus

"McKinley offers a seamless, believable world, a self-deprecating narrator whose voice never hits a false note, and a poignant message." -VOYA

"Robin McKinley has built an admirable career on taking familiar fairy-tale tropes, or long-loved stories, and skillfully combining the architecture of wonder with convincing, realistic detail so that the reader feels she can live inside the story. McKinley has never settled for doing the same thing over and over, but with each new book has experimented with voice, form, and tone, as well as character and plot...[Dragonhaven] is powerful, absorbing, and exquisitely rendered. McKinley makes those dragons real." -SF Site

"Compelling." -Booklist

"Insightful about emotion, biology, language, and the intricate love/hate relationship between science and humanity. Quietly magnificent." -Kirkus Reviews
