Über diesen Titel
London 1817. Maggie Collins, born into slavery in Maryland, whose mathematical genius and strength of mind can match those of a goddess, must build the world's most powerful and sophisticated machine—to free the lost land of Yount from the fallen angel Strix Tender Wurm.Review:
"In newer books, I offer Daniel A. Rabuzzi's The Indigo Pheasant: Longing for Yount Volume 2, with a beautiful cover piece and intriguing interior illustrations by Deborah Mills. A history that wasn't but might've been, brimming with mathematics and music, secrets and slavery, angels and engines, this was a dense, dark read, full of unexpected bright spots and with a tendency toward beautiful turns of phrase.- Camille Alexa, Sleeping Hedgehog, February 2013
"An ambitious chimera of a tale. Rabuzzi instills his prose with considerable wit, humor and a joyous use of language, his love of literature and history filling every page." - A Crow's Caw, October 2012
"The Indigo Pheasant is Dickens by way of C.S. Lewis and Jane Austen, set in a London where literature, history, science, and magic are all real. The world is fascinating, the language is stunning, and the plot is beautifully maze-like, but it's the diverse and skillfully drawn cast of characters that really make it come alive. I liked it even better than The Choir Boats, and that's saying something."- Delia Sherman, author of The Freedom Maze, September 2012
"Two young women, both brilliant mathematicians in 1817 London, must decide whether to team up to battle the fallen angel that holds the lost land of Yount in this young-adult fantasy alternate-history novel, sequel to the critically praised The Choir Boats."- Locus Magazine, New & Notable Books, November 2012
"The Indigo Pheasant is a colourful read in more ways than one. There's a wealth of detail worked into every scene, as well as flashes of intertextuality and nods towards famous writers of the 19th Century. This has the effect of making Yount into a rich and realistic-seeming alternate world, every bit as complete as our own...(E)normously enjoyable...surprisingly complex and worldly. If you enjoy original and authentic fantasy, then this is a book worth reading."
- Christopher Frost, Neon Magazine, February 2013
