Praise for The Queens of Innis Lear

"Amazing." --Robin McKinley

"The Queens of Innis Lear is a spectacular book. This is a story about family and love, jealousy and destiny, with its roots in the earth and stretching to the stars. Beautifully written, it's full of complex characters who will break your heart and heal it again. An instant favorite, this is a book I'll return to again and again."--Kat Howard, author of An Unkindness of Magicians

"Gratton takes Shakespeare's Lear to the sharpest, darkest, and most beautiful edge, perhaps where it should've existed all along." --Dhonielle Clayton, New York Times bestselling author of The Belles

"I adore this--rich, epic, blood-soaked--a glorious and grand sweeping fantasy." --Kate Elliott, author of The Poisoned Blade

"A gloriously symphonic, thematically rich variation on the story of the daughters of Lear. The danger of seeking certainty makes this a tale for our time; the power of truth and mercy makes it a tale for all times. Prepare to devour every word, for Innis Lear will consume you." --Karen Lord, author of Redemption in Indigo

"Messy, beautiful, and dark, darker than Shakespeare could have dreamed." --E. K. Johnston, author of Star Wars: Ahsoka

"A darkly rendered epic of old magic, hardened hearts, and complicated choices"--Booklist, starred review

"Enthralling."--Publishers Weekly

"Engrossing and magical adult debut."--Library Journal

"A welcome sight in the genre." --Kirkus Reviews

"[An] extraordinary and epic tale of family tragedy."-- RT Book Reviews
