Reviews

"Beautifully characterised and compellingly plotted, Gilded Cage is an impressive debut."--The Guardian

"Exquisitely wicked . . . a lavishly opulent, yet brutally vivid, alternate England which subtly questions modern beliefs . . . If ever there was a speculative fiction book that captured the zeitgeist of an era this is it."--SFFWorld

"An alternate modern-day England where enticing drama and social unrest mix with aristocratic scandal and glamorous magic . . . conjuring up the specters of Les Misérables and Downton Abbey . . . an absorbing first installment that presages an intriguing new fantasy series."--Kirkus Reviews

"A dark and intriguing vision of an alternate, magic-drenched Britain, Gilded Cage kept me up long into the night."--Aliette de Bodard, author of The House of Shattered Wings
