Rezension:

Enthralling. "Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Last First Snow"

Brilliant, elegant, epic, astonishing, smart, gritty.... another wondrous visit to the fantastic world of the Craft Sequence. "Ken Liu, author of The Grace of Kings, on Last First Snow"

Elegant and ferocious. "Daniel Jose Older, author of Half Resurrection Blues, on Last First Snow"

Gladstone gives us wonderfully relevant bits and pieces of the modern world, turned upside-down and inside-out and garnished with skeleton kings, serpent gods, and lawyer-magicians. It's glorious. "Django Wexler, author of The Thousand Names, on Last First Snow"

I'm having Max Gladstone killed. He's too good already to be allowed to live. If this is early work, the rest of us are out of a job. "Elizabeth Bear on Full Fathom Five"

Gladstone packs more ideas into a chapter than most writers manage in a full novel. "Brian Staveley on Full Fathom Five"

Newcomers and fans of the series alike will enjoy the mystery, demon-caused mayhem and fast-moving plot in this stellar, engaging read. "RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars, on Two Serpents Rise""

Vom Verlag:

From Max Gladstone, the new novel in the series praised by NPR as "sharp, original, and passionate."

In Four Roads Cross, the great city of Alt Coulumb is in crisis. The moon goddess Seril, long thought dead, is back--and the people of Alt Coulumb aren't happy. Protests rock the city, and Kos Everburning's creditors attempt a hostile takeover of the fire god's church. Tara Abernathy, the god's in-house Craftswoman, must defend the church against the world's fiercest necromantic firm--and against her old classmate, a rising star in the Craftwork world.

As if that weren't enough, Cat and Raz, supporting characters from Three Parts Dead, are back too, fighting monster pirates; skeleton kings drink frozen cocktails, defying several principles of anatomy; jails, hospitals, and temples are broken into and out of; choirs of flame sing over Alt Coulumb; demons pose significant problems; a farmers' market proves more important to world affairs than seems likely; doctors of theology strike back; Monk-Technician Abelard performs several miracles; The Rats! play Walsh's Place; and dragons give almost-helpful counsel.
