About the Author

Nicky Drayden's short fiction has appeared in publications such as Shimmer and Space and Time. She is a systems analyst and resides in Austin, Texas, where being weird is highly encouraged, if not required. Her debut novel, The Prey of Gods, was a best of the year pick by Book Riot, Vulture, and RT Book Reviews.

Reviews

"Drayden is an amazing writer and deft plotter. The twists are unexpected and never feel contrived, just as the novel explores real-world issues without sounding preachy."--Library Journal
"[Drayden] excels at making every twist and turn of the plot meaningful to the story. Moreover, the world-building is deliciously lush and complex. "--Booklist (starred review)
"Drayden (The Prey of Gods) crafts a tangled, fantastical African society as the setting for her spellbinding sophomore novel [...] Drayden takes speculative fiction in an exciting direction with a harrowing and impressive tale of twisted prophecy, identity, and cataclysmic change."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"It feels real in the ways of the best speculative fiction, as if we're looking at ourselves in a funhouse mirror, noting the skewed beauty, the blemishes, and all."--B&N Sci-fi & Fantasy Blog
"A thrilling and thrillingly weird book."--Vulture (The 10 Best Sci-Fi and Fantasy Books of 2018)
"Temper soars precariously, like a skyscraper made of playing cards, presenting a fast paced -- if occasionally messy -- reading experience."--Nerds of a Feather
