"Crackling with magic, mystery, adventure, and intrigue, VenCo is a captivating tribute to the bonds of families we are born into and the ones that we create, and a delightful testament to the power of all womankind." -- Nikki Erlick, New York Times bestselling author of The Measure

"An absolute thrill ride of a book, a page-turner of the highest order. VenCo is a powerful and unique reading experience, threaded through with humour and peril. It's a perfect novel for a winter's day, because sometimes, our reading life needs a touch of magic." -- Toronto Star

"Spellbinding and utterly original, VenCo shows the power women can wield when we join forces." -- Kirsten Miller, author of The Change

"A gripping, witchy romp of a novel. It's impossible not fall in love with Stella and Lucky." -- Buzzfeed

"Once I opened VenCo, I was propelled through an entire night of charmed reading. Cherie Dimaline creates a world utterly fantastical, yet real. VenCo is funny, tense, and cracking with a dark, divine energy." -- Louise Erdrich, New York Times bestselling author of The Sentence

"Fast, fun, full of charms...A propulsive read full of intriguing detail, this novel is well-written, engaging, and, more than anything, enjoyable. The reader will feel genuine affection for Dimaline's irreverent, badass witches as they battle for the future of their family and the future of the world, one and the same in Dimaline's inclusive vision." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Empire of Wild is doing everything I love in a contemporary novel and more. It is tough, funny, beautiful, honest and propulsive--all the while telling a story that needs to be told by a person who needs to be telling it. The book feels like now, and we need more stories from Native communities to feel that way. Cherie Dimaline is a voice that feels both inevitable and necessary." -- Tommy Orange, author of There There

"Deftly written, gripping and informative. Empire of Wild is a rip-roaring read!" -- Margaret Atwood, from Instagram

"Close, tight, stark, beautiful...Dimaline has crafted something both current and timeless, mythic but personal." -- NPR on Empire of Wild
