"A page-turning mixture of magic, suspense, and queer romance that keeps readers enthralled." -- Kirkus Reviews
"An enigmatic tale that feels as powerful and lush as the old-magic stories told by its characters, The Wise and the Wicked is an intoxicating ode to family, to first love, to storytelling. Podos's complex characters and evocative prose weave a tantalizing spell."
-- Claire Legrand, New York Times bestselling author of Furyborn
"In Ruby's distinctive first-person narrative, Podos explores how ancestral trauma, particularly among immigrant families, resonates among younger generations in surprising ways. This story packs unexpected depth, which is only enhanced by two refreshingly matter-of-fact queer romances." -- ALA Booklist
"Podos weaves an intricate plot full of mystery and folklore that will make readers race toward the satisfying conclusion. A beautifully rendered story about sacrifice, vengeance, survival, secrets, and lies." -- School Library Journal
