Reviews

"...as ambitious as George R.R. Martin or J.R.R. Tolkien..." --The Los Angeles Review of Books

"Takeda's visuals recall realistic, gritty manga such as Lone Wolf and Cub, with magic and monsters to rival those of Hayao Miyazaki's films." --Publishers Weekly

"Intricate and detailed, with a definite manga influence, Takeda's artwork creates a lush and dangerous world for Liu's equally dangerous characters. The work is infused with feminist themes; almost all of the characters are strong--and deadly--women." --School Library Journal

"Filled to the brim with awesome." --Kirkus Reviews

"Liu's accomplishment is impressive. She's created characters who feel larger than life, but whose motivations and values are almost always obscure." --NPR

"World-building on a scale rare in mainstream comics." --The Hollywood Reporter
