"Far too many releases in the genre seem little more than a collection of trite clichés in which all hope has been abandoned, evil rules the imagined world and the hero saves the day, but Cassidy notably bucks the trend with a well-conceived origin story that benefits from an acerbic pen and timely attention to detail. Yes, discerning fans of the genre will find the most loved devices of fantasy are to be found within Cassidy's narrative, but it's her ability to inject a haunting sense of realism and sidestep the pitfalls of predictability that draws the reader in." - Book Viral
