"Well-developed characters and intriguing worldbuilding...will keep readers engrossed in this fast-paced, enchanting postapocalyptic fantasy debut." -- Library Journal (starred review)

"Markswoman is an engaging, consuming fantasy novel.". -- Kirkus Reviews

"Markswoman gives us a heroine as principled as she is fierce, a gifted outcast who is forced to navigate the maze of treachery at the heart of a unique and finely drawn world." -- A. J. Hartley, author of Steeplejack (winner of ITW's Thriller award)

"An utterly remarkable world with female assassins and telepathic blades; I adored this book." -- New York Times bestselling author Julie Kagawa

-- Sarah Beth Durst, award-winning author of the Queens of Renthia series

"Markswoman is a breathlessly-paced post-apocalyptic fantasy with a highly original setting and characters you can't help but love (and hate)." -- Beth Cato, author of Breath of Earth and The Clockwork Dagger
