Reviews

"Hj枚rleifsd贸ttir's narrator pulls us into the tale of her near undoing and her struggle to find her own value. It is the masterful writer who can shock us and make it ring so true." --Lily King

"Magma is a luminous and poetic novel unlike any I have ever read. How to describe the slow escalation by which possession becomes control, and power abuse? Thora Hj枚rleifsd贸ttir shows how and the effects are shocking and beautiful. She has created a whole new landscape for storytelling." --John Freeman

"A novel that speaks directly to its present age... An incredibly compelling book." --Iceland National Radio
