"Beasts of the Frozen Sun is a fierce saga, beautifully told, that will transport readers to a time of magic and gods, battles and clan warfare. A totally engrossing and epic adventure--I couldn't get enough of Lira and Reyker's story."

-- "Jessica Leake, author of Beyond a Darkened Shore and Through the White Wood"

"High stakes and a whirlwind adventure...This book is full of forbidden love, a world on the brink of war, and incredible magic like the ability to read someone's soul...A story you could lose yourself in."

-- "Hypable"

"This intense, action-packed start to a series offers star-crossed lovers against a brutal backdrop and violent tests of loyalty. Criswell's world-building is particularly noteworthy, and the mythology and reality of Lira and Reyker's world are captivating...Purchase for fans of Game of Thrones-inspired fantasy."

-- "School Library Journal"

"A fast-paced, epic tale, a brilliantly imagined world, unforgettable characters, and a wonderful love story--Beasts of the Frozen Sun is a great start to what should be a compelling new series."

-- "Juliet Marillier, award-winning fantasy author of the Blackthorn & Grim and Sevenwaters series"

"Beasts of the Frozen Sun sweeps the reader into a lush and vivid world of magic and betrayal, crowned by a heroine who captivates from the first pages and a love story powerful enough to bring time to a standstill. An amazing debut."

-- "Erin Beaty, author of the Traitor's Circle trilogy"

"A knockout! The writing was spectacular...It was a fierce and dark tale about warring clans with a severe hatred of the unknown, a ballsy heroine who can read a man's soul with one simple touch, and a brooding love interest forced to fight against his heart. It's intense and addictive, and honestly I'm still reeling from that ending...but I cannot wait to get my hands on the sequel! This book deserves a 10 out of 10 and I urge you to pick this up, especially if you like historical fiction. It reminded me of The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson, but with a savage, Viking edge."
