Praise for Kushiel's Avatar

"Think Anne Rice's Exit to Eden crossed with J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings."--The Romantic Times

"The promise of Kushiel's Dart, the first volume of Carey's immense trilogy set in a skewed Renaissance world, is more than realized in this splendid conclusion....Effortlessly rich in adventurous incident, with a huge cast of well-defined characters, this poignant and robust story will appeal to both fantasy lovers and fans of erotic fiction." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

Praise for the Kushiel's Legacy series

"A very sophisticated fantasy, intricately plotted and a fascinating read." --Robert Jordan

"A beautifully written story and a gem of a fantasy novel." --The Associated Press

"A rollicking great adventure."--Charlie Jane Anders, io9

"Making a marvelous debut, Carey spins a breathtaking epic starring an unflinching yet poignantly vulnerable heroine." --Booklist, starred review

"With her provocative debut novel, Jacqueline Carey introduces herself as an extraordinarily talented writer...Ms. Carey weaves an exquisite tapestry of politics, intrigue, history, magic, desire and fate into a breathtaking epic that will captivate readers." --Romantic Times, Top Pick/Gold Medal, 41/2 stars

"Jacqueline Carey astonishes with her first novel...sexy and sometimes shocking, if you don't mind your eyeballs popping out every couple of chapters, this is a swell tale." --The Detroit Free Press

"Compulsively readable...a saga worthy of the field's best writer on such a scale, George R. R. Martin. It's an astonishing debut." --Locus

"The highly distinctive voice of the protagonist, Phedre, captured me within the first few pages of the novel and held me spellbound....This is a stunning debut novel." --Juliet Marillier
