Reviews

"Deft, tense and atmospheric, compellingly immersive and wildly original." --The New York Times

"Unlike anything I've ever read. Muir's writing is as sharp as a broken tooth, and just as unsettling." --V.E. Schwab, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

"With a snorting laugh and two middle fingers, the whole thing burns end-to-end. It is deep when you expect shallow, raucous when you expect dignity and, in the end, absolutely heartbreaking when you least expect it." --NPR

"Warm and cold; goofy and gleaming; campy and epic; a profane Daria in space." --Robin Sloan, author of Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

"I can't remember the last time I was so delightedly baffled by a book. An astonishing, genre-defying, hilarious-violent-tragic-horrifying-thrilling wonder of a novel." --Kiersten White, NYT Bestselling Author of And I Darken

"Lesbian necromancers explore a haunted gothic palace in space! Decadent nobles vie to serve the deathless emperor! Skeletons!" --Charles Stross, author of The Laundry Files and Empire Games

"I started this book chuckling at the outrageous premise. I finished it crying, because the ending punched me straight in the gut." --Vox

"Space opera, murder mystery, comedy, grotesque horror, and fantastic necromancy spin together in a book like no other." --BuzzFeed

And Five Starred Reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, Library Journal, BookList, and BookPage
