"Where Breath of Earth really shines is in its detail and relevance. Cato's exhaustive research of the time and place gives the book texture and grit...[and] she embroiders it richly with gorgeous period setpieces, imaginative speculation and the charismatic Ingrid herself."--NPR
"Breath of Earthis that rare gem, a thought-provoking, imaginative adventure of the highest order, chock full of wonder as well as heart-wrenching what ifs. It's reminiscent of Jules Verne at his best, with brilliant characters who linger in the mind and heart. Bravo!"--Julie E. Czerneda, author of The Clan Chronicles on BREATH OF EARTH
"Beth Cato gives steampunk a magical, global twist in an action-packed adventure that keeps the pages turning in anticipation. And if you don't fall in love with Ingrid Carmichael after reading this, you have no soul."--Michael J. Martinez, author of MJ-12: Inception and The Daedalus Incident on BREATH OF EARTH
"Cato cleverly brings her colorful Barbary Coast-era San Francisco to life, highlighting the neglected perspectives of the outsiders and the dispossessed who made up the majority of its populace."--Publishers Weekly
"The acclaimed Cato creates an alternate early 20th-century San Francisco of stunning detail. Drawing on the power struggles of the refugees and women's work, this vivid reality will keep readers intrigued to the very end."--Library Journal (starred review)
"Cato, author of the Clockwork Dagger books, begins a new steampunk fantasy series with supernatural creatures, action-packed adventure, mystery, humor, a touch of romance, and more to come."--Booklist (starred review)
