Praise for Into the Riverlands

A thrilling, wuxia-style addition to the series.--BuzzFeed News

A delicious bonbon of a novella about stories and their unreliable narrators, who wink at their listeners (or readers), fully expecting us to catch on.--The Wall Street Journal

Spellbinding. . . . Vo expertly weaves myths and histories of this fantastical land throughout, while also offering readers a deeper understanding of Chih themself, a character who may have been left as a framing device in lesser hands. The result is a pitch-perfect series installment.--Publishers Weekly, (starred review)

Rides the knife edge between telling a story and being in the middle of it and explores how tales become legends. . . . Highly recommended for . . . anyone who likes high fantasy inspired by Imperial China or wuxia movies and stories.--Library Journal (starred review)

The novella is written in Vo's rich, lovely language, and it's nice to have such a wonderful fantasy series be totally accessible in standalone volumes. . . . Fans of folklore-inspired fantasy will eat this one up.--Booklist

Praise for the Singing Hills Cycle

Gorgeous. Cruel. Perfect.--Seanan McGuire

A quiet, wrenching tale of resistance, resilience, and court intrigue.--R. F. Kuang

A glorious, beautifully-written tale that is both tragic and triumphant, unfolding a secret history through the ordinary artifacts of everyday life.--Kate Elliott

"Uncovers a nuanced history of how the disenfranchised shape history, and can come to rule it, though at great cost.--Buzzfeed

A masterpiece of understatement and implication. . . it gives the impression of effortlessness while being quietly meticulous in every stitch.--Nerd Daily

[A] gorgeous debut novella.--Paste

Vo's debut has it all: from sapphic love to cruel betrayals; from political intrigue to lakes that glow red to ghosts that continue to walk old paths.--Booklist, starred review

A stunning feminist fantasy.--Publishers Weekly, starred review

An epic in miniature, beautifully realised.--Zen Cho

At once epic and intimate, this story of revenge, power and the weight of history is a small, masterful jewel.--Aliette de Bodard

Resides in the intimate margins of its (beautifully imagined) world's history, portraying how the marginalized may yet shape those narratives and harness the power of stories.--Indra Das

Rich details and emotional prose captures readers from the first page of this imaginative and powerful novella. --Library Journal
