A Tip for the Hangman (2021)
Allison Epstein
"Anyone who likes Elizabethan bad boys, theater, spies, high intrigue, suspense, and sex is going to be delighted by A Tip for the Hangman. The writing goes down like a pint of good ale on a hot day and the characters are excellent company to enjoy it with. Christopher Marlowe himself would have loved it. I certainly did."

The Oddling Prince (2018)
Nancy Springer
"In The Oddling Prince, Nancy Springer juggles the tropes of fantasy and folklore with skill and wit, exploring kingship, brotherhood, friendship and heroism of many kinds while telling a story that kept me up far too late finding out what was going to happen next to characters I really cared about."

Cadaver & Queen (2018)
(Cadaver & Queen, book 1)
Alisa Kwitney
"It swept me right away."
