"A strange and wondrous course through questions of fate and free will . . . Hahn expertly tackles the power of belief and choice in this thoughtful and introspective work."--School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW "July 2015 "
* "From the author of the radiant A Creature of Moonlight (2014), a heartbreaking fantasy tackles life's big questions.... Chloe's narrative voice is piercing and poetic, encompassing both youthful heedlessness and eternal power, rich in minute observations, delicate metaphors, restrained accountings of atrocities, and reluctant wisdom. Alongside her sisters, she comes to sing mortals "a tune of cataclysms, of breaking points, of beautiful horrors"--but the final aching chord of helpless love becomes the unexpected triumphant resolution to every impossible question. Shattering and transcendent."--Kirkus Reviews, June 2015, STARRED REVIEW
"Awell-orchestrated tale of mythical beauty, painful remembrance, and fatefulconsequences...readers will soon be entranced by her ethereal prose and will befervently turning the pages to understand the mystery surrounding Aglaia'sarrival."--VOYA
* "This lyrical, thoughtful novel . . . is well worth the measured pace; it will likely linger with philosophical readers, particularly those familiar with the mythological Fates, long after they've finished."--BCCB, starred review
