“This sweeping fantasy is as much a love story as it is a tribute to storytelling, art, and inspiration. Schwab’s diverse cast is beautifully rendered, and the view of human connection on offer is biting and bitter, yet introspective and sweet. This ambitious and hopeful work is a knockout.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Spanning centuries and continents, this is a darkly romantic and suspenseful tale by a writer at the top of her game.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“This often startlingly raw story begs the questions: what is a soul? What does it mean to be remembered? And what prize is worth giving those things up? Schwab’s acclaimed Shades of Magic series is a perennial bestseller, and this masterfully cultivated genre-blended standalone is her most ambitious venture yet.”–Booklist, starred review

“Schwab (A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC) returns with another epic story of love and remembrance that probes deep into history while also penetrating profound matters of the heart.”–Library Journal, starred review

Villains series

“Schwab’s characters feel vital and real, never reduced to simple archetypes… In a genre that tends toward the flippant or pretentious, this is a rare superhero novel as epic and gripping as any classic comic. Schwab’s tale of betrayal, self-hatred, and survival will resonate with superhero fans as well as readers who have never heard of Charles Xavier or Victor von Doom.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

Shades of Magic series

“Full of magic, intrigue, adventure, deception, a bit of piracy…this will engage both adult and young adult fantasy readers alike.”–Booklist
