Reviews

"Written in beautifully agile prose, Star Eater is a layered and incisive examination of power, and Elfreda Raughn its beating heart. Her voice grabbed me from the first page and never let go."--Rory Power, New York Times bestselling author of Wilder Girls

"The intricate, bloody mechanics of Hall's worldbuilding come together with her perfectly assured prose to make an utterly compelling fantasy, both haunted and haunting."--A. K. Larkwood, author of The Unspoken Name

"Gut-churning, wonderful, and strange--a fantasy that knows where the bodies are buried."--Max Gladstone, author of This Is How You Lose the Time War

"Hall paints a lush and haunting world with a terrifying magic that forms the very foundation of society. Gripping and absorbing, Star Eater will leave readers lingering over its themes of heritage and power."--Andrea G. Stewart, author of The Bone Shard Daughter

"Systemic power structures built on the back of a dead god, ritualistic cannibalism, and magical disease are balanced with emotional themes of love and regret. . . . Hall's solid worldbuilding and strong prose create an utterly gripping novel that blends the boundaries of horror and fantasy."--Library Journal, starred review

"Star Eater is exciting horror-fantasy about power, violence, and control, and El's complicated quest to be free
of the violent magic system at the sisterhood's core will keep readers compelled from the first
page."--Booklist

Praise for Kerstin Hall

"A phantasmagorical picaresque through a lushly realised underworld, populated by a grotesque bestiary of fantastical creatures. . . . This twisty example of the new weird genre examines love, loss and loyalty."--The Guardian

"Beautifully and vividly imagined. Eerie, lovely, and surreal."--Ann Leckie

"A labyrinth of demons, dead gods, cranky psychopomps, and broken all-too-human lives."--Max Gladstone

"A fantasy forged in the belly of dreams. . . . A singular debut with no easy answers and beauty to spare."--Indrapramit Das

"Quiet but intricate, shored up by rich prose. . . . The tangle of love, loss, grief, and regret that is gradually exposed as the book's emotional core feels tender and profound."--Publishers Weekly
