"Magma is a luminous and poetic novel unlike any I have ever read. How to describe the slow escalation by which possession becomes control, and power abuse? Thora Hjörleifsdóttir shows how and the effects are shocking and beautiful. She has created a whole new landscape for storytelling." --John Freeman
"A novel that speaks directly to its present age... An incredibly compelling book." --Iceland National Radio
