"Sal's strong-willed personality and rich emotions create a protagonist who continues to shine" - Booklist
"Sal is intriguing and their genderfluidity adds depth to their personality. The narrative deals with issues of mystery, self-identity, and revenge. The ending provides a sense of closure, while leaving the door ajar for further adventures." - VOYA Magazine
"Praise for Mask of Shadows: "An intriguing world and a fantastically compelling main character make for a can't-miss debut. Miller's Mask of Shadows will make you glad you're not an assassin-and even gladder Sal is."-Kiersten White, New York Times bestelling author of And I Darken and Now I Rise" - Kiersten White, New York Times bestelling author of And I Darken and Now I Rise
"Praise for Mask of Shadows: Compelling and relatable characters, a fascinating world with dangerous magic, and a dash of political intrigue: Mask of Shadows completely delivered. Fantasy fans will love this book." - Jodi Meadows, New York Times bestselling coauthor of My Lady Jane
"Praise for Mask of Shadows: Miller's gritty, lightning-paced debut features a rough-and-tumble yet movingly vulnerable protagonist: Sal is uncompromising in their convictions, and doesn't hesitate to kill when necessary but wishes to be more than just a weapon of vengeance. A complex but intriguing start to this planned duology." - Publishers Weekly
"Praise for Mask of Shadows: This is a memorable, sharply written character. While readers who identify on the GLBTQ spectrum may be easy fans as Miller handles Sal's identity with aplomb, that's certainly not the only point of note here; the impressive, intricate world building, tense action, and fierce competitors are equally strong." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Praise for Mask of Shadows: Gory, well-plotted, suspenseful on every page, and poised for the sequel." - Kirkus
"Praise for Mask of Shadows: This fantasy's gender-fluid protagonist, Sal Leon, makes Miller's book worth picking up for diversity's sake alone. Her treatment of the gender issue is most notable in that it isn't really an issue... Violent and action-packed, this offering by first-time novelist Miller will circulate." - School Library Journal
