Reviews

"Pulley's latest genre-bending feat (after The Lost Future of Pepperharrow) masterfully combines history, speculative fiction, queer romance, and more into an unputdownable whole. . . This is a stunner." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Natasha Pulley's The Kingdoms is an intricate plot, for sure, but you get swept up in the narrative. If this sounds like the type of book you're drawn to - epic! time travel! history! - you know who you are." --Alma

"As scenes spiral back and forth between centuries, the book's emotional center crystallizes around a fundamental mystery: Who, in fact, is Joe? All time-travel plots are fraught with paradox, but not all rise to Pulley's level of tricky cleverness, and few of those trickily clever books rise to her level of emotional intensity. Suspenseful, philosophical, and inventive, this sparkling novel explores the power of memory and love." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Pulley balances the topsy-turvy nature of time travel by grounding her story in tidbits of naval history and a gradually unfolding queer love story." --BookPage

"This riveting story keeps the reader hoping that Joe can rebuild his family in the best time line." --Booklist

"I loved it." --Crimereads' Most Anticipated Books of Summer

"Immensely pleasurable reading... Intricate, charming and altogether surprising." --The New York Times Book Review on THE WATCHMAKER OF FILIGREE STREET

"An epic journey." --The New York Times Book Review on THE BEDLAM STACKS

"Phenomenal... Pulley's intricate plot, vibrant setting, entrancing magic, and dynamic ensemble of characters make for an un-put-downable historical fantasy." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review for THE LOST FUTURE OF PEPPERHARROW
