Praise for Nettle & Bone:

"This book is a modern classic."--Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of Every Heart a Doorway

"Nettle & Bone is a wonderful entwining of darkness & whimsy."--Travis Baldree, New York Times bestselling author of Legends & Lattes

"Exciting, deeply wise, sad, brutal and compassionate all at once."--Catriona Ward, author of Last House on Needless Street

"T. Kingfisher uses the bones of fairy tale to create something entirely her own."--Emily Tesh, Hugo-nominated author of Silver in the Wood

"Funny, frightening, and full of heart; I loved it."--Alix E. Harrow, author of The Ten Thousand Doors of January

"Kingfisher's combination of comedy with feminist rage in a complex fairytale setting makes for a wholly entertaining read."--Buzzfeed

"Deeply satisfying and darkly funny feminist fairytale . . . . this marvelous romp will delight Kingfisher's fans and fairytale lovers alike."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

"Blending fairy-tale familiarity and common-sense characters, Kingfisher's prose balances grim circumstances with humor and heart."--Library Journal, STARRED review

"Kingfisher is an inventive fantasy powerhouse, and Nettle & Bone represents the burgeoning 'hopepunk' ethos at its finest, with its winsome characters and focus on their fight to make the world a better place."--Bookpage, STARRED review

"Clever and bold-hearted . . . this rollicking feminist fairy tale is filled with redemption, community and courage, its dark passages the road to a satisfyingly uplifting endgame."--Shelf Awareness, STARRED review

"Nettle & Bone leans into the macabre and evokes the Grimm-est of stories . . . Highly recommended for fans of fractured fables like Naomi Novik's Uprooted and Helen Oyeyemi's Gingerbread." --Booklist, STARRED review

"Nettle & Bone is full of delights and surprises--and proves that [Kingfisher] has more than a few tricks left up her sleeve."--Locus
